EDITORS NOTE: We need to pray for Hanford WA. This doesn’t just affect them, it affects all of us.
2 Chronicles 7:14 – If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Because this has been declared an Emergency there is potential that people in the Richmond WA area could be affected, but nobody outside of Richmond WA.
