Holy God, you are our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble. We pray today for all those in the wake of Hurricane Patricia. We pray for protection for those most vulnerable to the storm and for wisdom and safety for first responders. We pray for the many challenges which will be left in the wake of this powerful storm and we ask that you will equip and inspire us to be witnesses to your compassion and care for all who suffer its impact. Amen.
