A prayer on a day of storms

God of the wind,

God of the sun,

God of the rain,

God of the fury,

God of the calm,

God of the storm,

we pray for places, peoples, and creatures

facing severe weather.

For Alaska as the people face

the remnants of Typhoon Merbok;

for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands,

and for Guadeloupe and other islands in the Caribbean

where Tropical Storm Fiona prowls;

and for places and peoples

who face storms of which we are unaware.

In Alaska,

in Puerto Rico,

in each place and every place,

protect the people and your creatures,

guide those who take steps to increase safety,

strengthen those who respond, and who are preparing to respond,

inspire the nations and organizations of the world

to provide appropriate assistance.

This we pray in the name of Jesus

who stilled a storm.

Amen.
