Typhoon Ursula, Philippine Islands, Christmas Day 2019
Our Father, we pray for those who have been devastated by the typhoon on the Philippine Islands this Christmas Day. We remember those who have lost their lives so suddenly and hold in our hearts the families forever changed by grief and loss. Bring them consolation and comfort. Surround them with our prayers for strength. Bless those who have survived and heal their memories of trauma and devastation. May they have the courage to face the days ahead, and, also, please take care of the displaced wildlife in their confusion.
Help us to respond with generosity in prayer, in assistance, and in comfort to the best of our abilities. Keep our hearts focused on the needs of all the community.
