Prayer for All Affected By Hurricane Harvey

It may be a sunny Saturday morning here in Palatine, but Hurricane Harvey has severely damaged Texas and rains still pose a threat. Please join me in prayer…

Dear God of Heaven and Earth,

Hear the voices of your people who are filled with anxiety and fear from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Remind all troubled souls through faith that your will for us is life and everlasting good. Help the first responders as they provide food, clothing, and shelter to those in need. Empower the government authorities to bring order to the chaos caused by this horrible storm so that life may return to healthy routine very soon. Finally, then we ask that through this hurricane, people of all ages may turn to you for assurance, comfort, and strength to meet the days ahead. For you, dear Father, are the creator of all who sent his Son to save us and pours out your Spirit to bless us. AMEN

Jesus Calms a Storm

And when he got into the boat, his disciples followed him. And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but he was asleep. And they went and woke him, saying, “Save us, Lord; we are perishing.” And he said to them, “Why are you afraid, O you of little faith?” Then he rose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. And the men marveled, saying, “What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey him?” Matthew 8:23-27

See you in church,
