There are 60-80 mph winds in South Dakota right now (Dec. 21). Friends of Doug and Lori Lundeen who ranch have lost track of 500 head of cattle that have crossed over a main highway.

Creator God and Loving Father, You know the needs of each of your creatures — cattle and people. And You know the terrible winds in South Dakota at the moment. But You are greater than any storm, Your eye is on each of those cows, and You know the financial needs of their owners. We pray for Your protection over all the cattle and for the peace and safety of the ranchers. Use this moment to draw people to You in faith and trust in Your plan to care for them. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
