Help victims of Hurricane Dorian!
Hurricane Dorian has devastated the Bahamas and wreaked havoc along the southeastern coast of the United States. You can help in many ways! Lutheran Disaster Response already has people on the ground to meet people’s immediate needs, evaluate what to do next, and eventually, to rebuild.
Donate now to Lutheran Disaster Response – Help people on the ground now who have been displaced by Hurricane Dorian!
Give – Pray – Love. That’s what people of faith do when our neighbors need us. Here is information from our church family in the Florida-Bahama Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
From our brothers and sisters in the Florida-Bahamas Synod: The situation after Hurricane Dorian
What you can do: Pray
LitanyO Lord, when the waters rage and foam, Still the storms and grant us your peace. When the gift of creation becomes burden, Still the storms and grant us your peace. When our fears threaten to overtake us, Still the storms and grant us your peace. Speak your word to the wind and to the sea, Fill us with faith. Show us your care in the service of others, Fill us with compassion. Make the joy of your peace overflow in our lives, Fill us with hope. Amen.
Prayer of Intercession:
Gracious God, you still the storms. You are our refuge and strength, a very present help in time of trouble. In the wake of Hurricane Dorian, bring comfort to the afflicted and strength to those who come to their aid. Reveal your presence to those in the Caribbean and the eastern region of our country so that all may know your healing, hope, and love. As one community on earth bound together by your grace, inspire us to pray, serve, and help all those who suffer. Lord in your mercy, Hear our prayer.
