If your prayers this week include intercession for The Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan, here’s a prayer that might be helpful. It comes from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
Prayer for those Suffering from Storms or Flooding
in the communion of Christ,
we are joined with the trials and sufferings of all.
Be with those who endure the wind and rain/flooding.
Protect those in the path of danger.
Open the pathway of evacuations.
Help loved ones find one another in the chaos.
Provide assistance to those who need help.
Ease the fears of all
and make your presence known in the stillness of your peace;
Through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
