As much as we anticipate spring for some parts of the country with spring comes deadly storms. This last week a F4 tornado swept through Alabama.  In Beauregard, Alabama 23 people died, 10 of them were related.  Let us remember those who have lost loved their homes and their loved ones.  The weather forecast more deadly storms across the south over the next couple of days.

Holy One, you are our comfort and strength in times of sudden disaster, crisis or chaos. Surround the people of Beuregard with your grace and peace as they face the days ahead.  By your Spirit, lift up those who have lost their homes and families,  sustain those who work to rescue or rebuild, and fill us with the hope of your new creation; through Jesus Christ, our rock and redeemer.
