Please Pray For Slave Lake, Alberta!!

Hello my dear friends,

at the moment there are over 100 wild fires in Alberta, Canada out of control which includes one very close to Fort McMurray where my husband works. One fire is especially terrible right now - the Slave Lake fire!

I would like to ask you all to pray for the people of Slave Lake, Alberta. Their town is being destroyed by a huge wild fire that is out of control. Over half of the town has already been lost to the flames and the fire is moving forward very fast!!

Please pray for the people of Slave Lake and everybody that might be affected by these fires. Please pray for all the firemen from all over Canada that are working their hardest to get these fires under control and please pray for rain so it can help put the flames out!!!

Thank you,

have a peaceful and safe day,

Karen B.


  1. What a terrible tragedy. I just cannot imagine what these poor people are going through, and it also brings tears to my eyes thinking of all the wild animals so terrified and unable to escape.

  2. My thoughts are with all those people .
    I saw it on the news.
    I know what a fire is, we lost 5 of our cats in it and of course a big part of our house.
    But that is rebuild, my cats were gone.
    Sometimes i think i will never get over it.

    I hope, it will be soon under control over there.


  3. How dreadful. I cannot imagine. But I can and will pray!

  4. Thank you for the post. Please keep us informed and I'll be praying.

  5. so many people are displaced ...i cannot imagine the devastation ... and sense of complete and utter loss ...

  6. What is so awful is the speed that those poor people were told they had to get out...just to go..leave everything. So very sad.
