God of Blowing Wind and Gushing Water,
The destruction of the hurricane may be great,
but your ability to speak into chaos,
to weave peace into loss,
to fortify those who fear what the future may hold,
is even greater.
Work your spirit through those who will rebuild,
who place one foot in front of the other on the road to recovery.
Instill courage and grant perspective.
Comfort those who grieve.
Give breath to hope,
give energy to those who help.
We look to you for endurance
and for provision.
