Please pray for the Gulf Coast

As of this writing, Gustav is a Category 3 hurricane that's anticipated to hit somewhere on the Gulf Coast between 8 AM and 8 PM tomorrow (the 12 hour time difference is contingent on exactly where it hits on the Alabama, Louisiana, or Texas Coasts.

Please pray for the people of the Gulf Coast, especially in Louisiana. CNN reports:

"Maps of Gustav's path shows it could strike southern Louisiana and other areas battered by Hurricane Katrina."
KatrinaGrace is reaching out to those who've traveled to LA and Miss. to assist those who were affected by Katrina and Rita in 2005 to ask for prayer and to consider the possibility of going to the Gulf Coast should that be necessary.
