Oh God, Creator of earth and sea and sky,
we pray for our sisters and brothers who have endured storm and disaster, and for those who have been lost.
Give them endurance and strength and help when needed.
We know that you remain with us in every moment of our lives.
Lord, increase our faith now and let it guide us in these difficult days.
Protect the safety of those people who are responding, restoring and rebuilding.
Help us to keep in mind all that is good in the human spirit,
and to be grateful for all who have stepped forward to help others.
May these days be a time of grace for us all.
We make this prayer through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
