We know your thoughts are not our thoughts, and your ways are not our ways.
In your wisdom you have made a world with the possibility of mighty waves, winds, fires, floods, and quaking ground.
At this time, help us trust you.
Keep all of us and all who have been affected by this disaster from despair.
Support us, and may we receive the comfort that comes only from your Holy Spirit.
Assist those who attend to the injured and displaced, console those grieving, and protect the vulnerable.
Empower your church, and bring hope and healing that all may find relief and restoration.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
