- Pray for those who have been injured or have lost a family member - pray that God's will will be done in these situations, and that he will work all of this for his glory and for the good of his people (Romans 8:28), comforting those who mourn and protecting those who are injured. Pray also that it will be a good time for the gospel to go out to these people.
- Pray for the firefighters, who are risking their lives either voluntarily or because it is their job to do so. Pray that God will protect them and make their work effective, and thank God for their efforts to protect us. Pray also that God will work these fires as a way for his gospel to be spread to the firefighters.
- Pray for those who have lost their homes and possessions - I cannot fathom what that would be like, but pray that they will be provided for by their communities, an especially that our churches will use the opportunity to show the gospel through lovingly helping those in need.

A prayer point.
Over the last few days there've been fires all across the state I live in here in Australia and hundreds of people have lost their homes and all their possessions. As far as I know only one man has died, but there are a few in hospital.
