  • A Prayer for Safety During Hurricane Irma

    A Prayer for Safety During Hurricane Irma

    God of heaven and earth,
    Source of All,
    Hurricane Irma has already left behind a path of destruction, death and difficulty for so many people, particularly on the small Caribbean islands, and we are afraid as we wait to hear of the effects on our own country.
    What chaos will blow with the wind?
    What destruction will strike?
    Who will suffer? Who will stay secure?

    God of mystery and awe,
    Grant the people of Florida, Georgia and surrounding areas safety as Irma and the after storm surges engulf their homes and businesses. Protect them. Shield them. Guard them.
    Grant peace of mind to those in fear.
    We pray that everyone has enough food, clothing and water.

    Provide shelter to those in need.
    Bless emergency and rescue workers with the tools and skills they need
    as they risk their lives for the sake of our families, communities and friends.
    Grant healing to those who are sick or injured.

    Bless people with common sense throughout the hurricane
    And with kinship and cooperation when the storm passes.

    God of awe and wonder,
    Our Rock and our Refuge,
    Be with our loved ones through this difficult and frightening time,
    watch over them through the night,
    surround them with your comfort, security and wellbeing,
    and give us the wisdom and compassion to know how to help them in the days to follow.

    We ask all this in the name of your blessed son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

  • A Prayer for all those affected by Hurricane Harvey

    (The following prayer was written by the Institute for Religion and Democracy.)

    Almighty God,
    We come to you with a heavy heart for Houston and all those communities affected by this storm. While it’s tempting to ask you “Why did this happen?”, we humbly submit to your will and instead ask, Lord, for you to be a beacon of hope among the wreckage.
    Grant safety to the men, women, and little children navigating the dangerous flood waters. Strengthen local clergy and congregants as they provide shelter and aid for their communities. Specifically, give wisdom and present resources to pastors and lay leaders working to provide for the physical needs of those who have lost homes, precious belongings, and are possibly separated from their loved ones. Give them courage to minister to the spiritual needs as well.
    No doubt considerable fear and anxiety haunt those in affected areas. Grant unshakable peace and rid this storm’s victims of the spirit of fear. Show us all how to respond to the needs of those struggling with frustration and fear, that we may serve you well through your son Jesus Christ.
