When It Won't Stop!

When the wind won't stop
Blowing and swirling
Leaving destruction in its path

And

When the rivers won't stop rising
Forcing people to make decisions
That none are ever prepared to face

And

When people won't stop fighting
When slippery jobs won't stay still
When the price of food and gasoline won't stop rising
And the lamp of courage is almost extinguished
Because the world as we know it is spinning out of control!

Good and gracious God,
Anchor us
Hold us
Have mercy upon us
Steel us
For the challenges that lie ahead.

Amen.
