Pelted by rain, battered by winds, overwhelmed with fear - Lord, protect those whose lives have been uprooted by the storms.
We pray for aid to reach those who are exposed and despairing, for your healing presence to reach those who feel cut off.
Amid the mud and destruction, precisely there, we pray that your light will give hope and strength.
As the new days dawn Lord, we pray for your ongoing protection against disease and desperation, and for those who can offer relief to hear your call to stand by those in distress.
We pray these words knowing that your power is greater than any storm and your tenderness a refuge for all.
In the name of Jesus,
