Prayer 437- During a Tornado Warning
A prayer during a tornado warning
O God, we know that you are with us in the silence and in the tempest: we come to You in prayer, comforted by your love. Be our shelter against the rough winds that shake us from our sleep. Deliver us, O Loving One, from stubbornness and hardness of heart, from the storms that rage from within as well as without. Preserve us from the rising waters of anxiety and insecurity; place us upon the strong rock of faith. We know that You do not slumber nor sleep; You are our light in the darkness before dawn.
Secure within your embrace, O Steadfast One, we lift up our prayers of petition and thanks for those we love, especially those we now name.
