Loving and Compassionate God, you are our comfort
And strength in times of sudden disaster, crisis, or chaos.
Surround us now, O Lord, with your grace and peace
Through storm or winds, fires or floods.
By your Spirit, lift up those who have fallen,
Sustain those who work to rescue or rebuild,
And fill us with the hope of your new creation;
Through Christ, our rock and redeemer. Amen.
