Prayers for those affected by Storms, tornados and floods

The Presbyterian Disaster Assistance has been busy responding to several natural disasters this last week.

Cyclone Idai has devastated the Zimbabwe, Malawi and Mozambique. According to UNICEF about 1.7 million people have been affected by what some are reporting as the worse tropical cyclone on record to affect Africa and the Southern Hemisphere.

Alabama and Mississippi Tornadoes over the last few weeks have destroyed communities, homes and churches.

Nebraska and Iowa flooding continues to worsen. Heavy rain and rapid snowmelt have cause catastrophic flooding throughout the Missouri River basin and is moving downstream.  Farms, farmland, communities, livestock, homes and businesses have been overcome with flood waters.

Please remember these devastated communities in prayer. You can also contribute to Presbyterian Disaster Assistance.

Prayer in a Time of Disaster

Holy One, you are our comfort and strength in times of sudden disaster, crisis, or chaos. Surround the people who facing the aftermath of devastation storms with your grace and peace. By your Spirit, lift up those who have fallen, 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.

Amen
