Lord, we bless those who are hurting and wounded from the storms in their lives. I ask that you will bring the best out of all the people who have been adversely affected by this terrible event. We place before You as an offering the men, women and children who are in pain and despair.
Lord, bring from this tragedy Your peace that is not effected by circumstances, Your stamina that does not burn out, Your compassion that does not overlook even the smallest details.
Help each one to discover beauty in everyone they meet, to find release in laughter when the stress and hard work is more than they can bare. Give them friends who will share tears with them when they’re down.
Most of all, I pray, that each person will find the joy of a true friendship with You, and give themselves to You as an offering. Lord, let it be that in the middle of their heartache, each person will be able to fix their attention on You and Your great love.
In Jesus name, we pray.
