'O afflicted one, storm-tossed, and not comforted,
Behold, I will set your stones in antimony,
And your foundations I will lay in sapphires.' (Isaiah 54:11)

God of refuge, 
protect our sisters and brothers in Bangladesh and India, 
tossed far from their homes by Cyclone Amphan. 
Some afraid to evacuate for fear of a pandemic disease,
surrounded by catastrophe and debris. 
Comfort them as they journey and where they stay. 

Your love knows no distance, O God be near your children in peril.
Set them on their way to safety, let them find your help. 
Awaken in our hearts a love that reaches out –
a love that shelters neighbours from the storm,
a love that lays the foundations for recovery,
a love that perseveres. 

We pray for their protection to you, 
our God who never gives up. 

In Jesus name,
