Over the last several days, horrible fires have been blazing through northern California. One area that has been drastically affected has been Redding, California, the home of Bethel Church. Last week, the church posted about the devastating fires. 

They wrote,  "On Monday, July 23, the Carr Fire started in Northern CA within Shasta County. As of this morning, the fire has consumed 20,000 acres and is 10% contained. Right now, we're inviting the global community to join us in praying for Redding, for Northern California, and for California overall."

Over the last few days, several world-famous Christian leaders have been posting about the fires, asking people to pray. Havilah Cunnington made a post talking about the powerful words that Lisa Bevere told her. 

Franklin Graham also posted an update about the fires and asked for people to join him in prayer:

Bethel Music director Joel Taylor posted about the fires as well:

Bethel Church gave the following specific prayer points: "Peace to our state and to those near fire, wisdom and safety for firefighters and officials, rain and the ceasing of wind, the smoke to clear for full visibility, no lightning strikes, and for total and complete containment."

They added this prayer: "God, we invite You to come and bring healing and divine intervention to this situation, and to the fires burning throughout California. You are faithful, and You are sovereign over the weather. Bring restoring rains,  and protect this land."

Please be praying for Northern California as they walk through this difficult situation and please be praying for the points that Bethel Church mentioned! In other recent news, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just released their new epic monogram.
