A prayer for all those impacted by Hurricane Florence from our friends Bishop Sam Rodman and Bishop Anne Hodges-Copple of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina:
God of all creation, giver of life and author of salvation: look with compassion upon the lands, the waters and all the creatures therein, in the path of natural disasters like Hurricane Florence, Typhoon Mangkhut, and their aftermath. Give to each according to our need strength, serenity and stability in the hours, days and weeks to come. Help us to be still where we must be still, be empowered where we can be most useful, and be tender in our care for each and every neighbor, near and far. Amen.
