More About Hurricane Sandy

President Shimon Peres sent a letter to US President Barack Obama Thursday afternoon expressing his sympathies for the victims of Hurricane Sandy:
From Jerusalem I am joined by the people of Israel in an expression of concern for the ravages caused by hurricane Sandy and the destruction it left in its wake. Our hearts go out to the people of America and I would like to extend my deepest sympathy and condolences to the families who have lost their loved ones in this super storm.
We are looking with admiration upon the courage of the American people and its leaders in dealing with the present ordeal. Our hearts are with you.

Christian Friends of Israeli Communities (CFOIC):
Dear Friend,

As we sit riveted to our television sets, following the path of this
destructive storm, we hope and pray that our friends and dear ones on the East Coast of the US are safe and dry. It is at times like this that we see the amazing power of G-d as He reigns on this earth. We can never know why G-d brings these natural disasters upon man but we recognize His ultimate power upon our lives and our world. May G-d keep us safe. May G-d see us through this difficult time. And may we all use this opportunity to turn to Him for help.

Pastor Hagee:
Father God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, we call upon you to intervene, protect and provide for the millions of Americans affected by hurricane Sandy. We humbly ask that you comfort those who mourn for their loved ones who are injured or who have lost their lives because of this devastation. May Your mercy and grace bring needed consolation to America as we recover from this mass destruction.
We give praise and thanks to You Lord, for it is You, the God of all grace and mercy, who will ultimately bring healing, restoration and encouragement to those seeking to rebuild their lives. Amen
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
