Prayers for those who are facing the aftermath of severe weather

The Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) has deployed nation response teams to several Midwest regions following the severe weather outbreak this last week. They are also prepared to deploy teams to assist with historic flooding through the mid-section of the country.

Even in Northwest New Jersey we have experience severe thunderstorms and tornados.  The Stanhope Church Steeple was struck by lightning.

This week let us remember in prayer those who are cleaning up, wondering what to do next or where they are going to live following the severe storms of May 2019.

Holy One, you are our comfort and strength in times of sudden disaster, crisis, or chaos. Surround us now with your grace and peace through storm or tornado destruction or  flood. 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.
