God, be with the rancher in Nebraska who swung open gates and drove away helplessly so his cattle could escape the rising waters.
God, comfort the rancher who rushed to load as many steers as possible before having to leave the last 100 to drown because he couldn’t get to them in time.
God, sustain the rancher who threw calves into hay lofts and enclosed trailers to save them from bitter cold and because he knew saving the calves would be easier than saving their mamas.
God, console the rancher who has watched his barns and buildings and equipment get picked up and carried away by rushing water.
God, carry the rancher who takes his tractor to go help his neighbor and himself gets washed away by a collapsed bridge, losing his life in the tide.
God, help the rancher that has to move his family to higher ground, but watches in despair as his cows look to him for help.
God, be with, comfort, sustain, console, and carry the rancher. God, bless the rancher. Amen.
