Receive God's Warm Love Through Reflection

Prayer for Houston

on April 21, 2016

The last few days have been so traumatic for Houston as they experienced terrible rains and floods. The area that we grew up in experienced the worst of it, and it makes us sad to see the devastation there. We ask that you pray for the people living in Houston and for their safety, well-being, and comfort as they deal with the aftermath and the destruction.

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” – Psalm 46:1

Prayer In Times Of Natural Disaster

God of healing and mercy, we come before you with our hearts filled with grief as we see the devastation.

We pray that your presence would be felt by those who are grieving, who are injured, who have lost their homes and livelihoods.

We pray for wisdom and safety for those who are responding to the people in need and the many challenges left in the wake of the event.

We pray for our church, that it may be a witness to your compassion and care for all who suffer.

God, you are our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble. For this we give you thanks and ask that you hear our prayers for the people of Houston. Amen.
