A Prayer for Storm Survivors

Jesus, we see you calming storms --
storm-tossed seas and stormy lives.
Extend your power and grace again,
especially upon these most recent storm victims.
Speak peace and healing over bodies and spirits broken by the chaos.

Jesus, speak peace.

Silence

Speak peace and hope over families and communities devastated by sudden loss.

Jesus, speak peace.

Silence

Speak peace and unity over diverse groups of people
so they would come together for greater provision,
just distribution and effective rebuilding.

Jesus, speak peace.

Silence

Speak peace and protection over rescue workers
as they reach out to those who are suffering.

Jesus, speak peace.

Silence

You are the Prince of Peace.
You are the Resurrection and the Life.
You are strong to save.

Our hope and trust are in you. Amen.
