PRAYERS FOR THE VICTIMS OF HURRICANE SANDY
A PRAYER FOR HURRICANE VICTIMS
Lord, you who calmed the storm at sea,
quiet the fears, ease the pain, tend the grief,
and light the darkness of your children along
the East Coast.
In stunned silence, be their voice
In rages against the night, be their balm,
In bewilderment, be their hope.
Lead rescuers to the lost,
shelter the waiting.
Sustain those who work to
make life's necessities spring
forth in this desert of gloom,
Blanket the weary with your tender touch.
Shake us from our comforts to
share our siblings sorrow and
pray them into new life.
You area shelter from the storm.
Your view is a higher view.
You ride on the wings of the wind,
and Your love for us is deeper than
the ocean's depths.
Be with all Your children through
this long night of raging...
through days of unknowing...
through changes unbidden...
through it all.
Heal our land.
