Hurricane Florence: Pray for the Carolinas

Hurricane FlorenceAs Hurricane Florence barreled toward the Carolinas Thursday, NRB’s president & CEO urged members and friends of the association to pray for those in the path of the storm, noting that numerous NRB members are based in the Carolinas.

“Let’s commit to pray for NRB partners who are in the Carolinas,” wrote Dr. Jerry A. Johnson in an email to NRB members and friends. “Perhaps you would want to reach out to those you know with a phone call, text, or email. Let them know you are praying for them and ready to help with practical assistance, as able.

“Most of all, really pray over the list below as you read it,” he said, referring to the list of NRB members based in the Carolinas.

Although Florence was downgraded to a Category 2 storm as it approached the Carolinas Thursday morning, the storm is still expected to make a devastating impact, especially given its size.

According to reports, the diameter of Florence's tropical-storm-force winds is almost 400 miles. 

“Hurricane Florence is spreading rain and wind into the Carolinas, with landfall possible either overnight tonight or Friday, kicking off an agonizing crawl through the Southeast into early next week, producing catastrophic inland rainfall, flooding, life-threatening storm surge and destructive winds,” reported meteorologists at

As of Thursday morning, more than 10 million people were under a watch or warning related to the hurricane. As the storm moves inland, Georgia, Virginia, and Maryland may also be in peril.

A number of NRB members are on standby to assist with disaster relief efforts, including the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Convoy of Hope, Operation Blessing International, Samaritan’s Purse, Somebody Cares America, and World Vision.
