As the devastation that Hurricane Harvey has left in it’s wake continues to unfold, our first response as Christians is to pray. Pray for our neighbors who are suffering and all those who are working tirelessly to rescue and support the victims.
Merciful Father, who has taught us in your holy Word that you do not willingly afflict or grieve the children of men: Look with pity upon the sorrows of your servants for whom our prayers are offered. Remember them, O Lord, in mercy, nourish their souls with patience, comfort them with a sense of your goodness, lift up your countenance upon them, and give them peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
– Book of Common Prayer
