Woodland Park, CO—According to news reports Wednesday morning, the wildfire that has been threatening developments in Colorado Springs jumped firefighters’ perimeter lines overnight, and has doubled in size.
Over 9,000 residents near the area are under mandatory evacuation, as some 32,000 residents overall have been affected by evacuation orders throughout the area.
Rob Dyerberg, a fire information officer noted that the Waldo Canyon Fire had grown by “more than 12 ½ square miles late Tuesday to 24 square miles.”
Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt is asking people to pray for rain over the area west of Colorado Springs, but not so much to cause flash flooding.
We at BCN join with Chaplain Klingenschmitt in asking our readers to please pray for an end to these raging fires in Colorado. That the Lord God would send just enough rain—even today—as to quench the fires and stop them from advancing any further; for the wind to calm and no more lives or homes to be lost. “Peace be still” over Colorado, in JESUS’ name.
