A prayer for protection

We pray in solidarity with our brothers and sisters who are suffering from the effects of Hurricane Harvey as we prepare for Hurricane Irma.

We pray for those in the path of the storm, for all evacuating to safety and for all who will work to serve our communities and protect the dignity of life. May we take care of ourselves, our loved ones and those God puts in our path.

Remember that God loves you and walks with you. Be not afraid! Take a deep breath and trust that you are not alone.

Let us pray for protection

Lord of mercy, watch over and protect all of your children in the path of Hurricane Irma. Please protect us and guide us toward safe harbors as we take shelter in you. Amen.
