Tornado Relief In Tennessee

The images of destruction from yesterday morning’s tornado in Nashville, TN and surrounding counties have replayed in my mind since I first saw the news. 

Devastating stories of residents still searching for loved ones, stories about the 25 victims, children and adults, who have died as a result of this storm, and the stories of those who have lived through it break my heart. As you can imagine, they’ve just experienced one of the most traumatic events a person can go through.

Our prayers are lifted for the residents of middle Tennessee. Our prayers are lifted, and our team has been in motion, starting our response effort yesterday. This morning we began a collection at our local Sam’s Club on Ward’s Road in Lynchburg, VA to collect emergency supplies and shelter items. 

In addition to emergency relief supplies we’re also in need of financial donations to support this effort. Please visit to learn more, or press the red button below to give a financial donation. As is the case with any disaster relief effort at Gleaning, 100% of your donation will be used directly as it is intended: to help cover the costs associated with getting relief supplies to Tennessee. 

Let’s work together to help those in need right now. Please donate if you are able. 

In service and partnership,

Jeane Smiley-Mason

President & COO

Dear Heavenly Father,

Today we praise you for the unity we are seeing among your children. People of all ages and denominations are becoming more outspoken about their love for you and their faith in you. During this time of social distancing, people all over social media are praising you and praying to you, and we thank you for that.
Lord, today we ask for mercy for those who have celebrations planned in the coming days. Weddings, birthday parties, retirement celebrations, and other events take time, money, and resources to put together. Lord, help those who are cancelling their celebrations to rejoice in your love, and please help them to be able to recover from any financial woes brought on by COVID-19.

With current restrictions in place, Lord, we ask that people are able to share each other’s joys in unique and creative ways. We thank you for the technology in place that helps loved ones celebrate special moments together, even when they are apart. Thank you for the love of friends and family.

We pray this in Jesus’ name, amen.

Romans 5:3-4

We also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. (Join our Facebook prayer community: Praying through the pandemic)
