Prayer for People of Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and Mexico

Dear Heavenly Father, We turn toward You now with trust and hope for our brothers and sisters who are affected by Hurricane Harvey.  Please provide for the safety of all victims and their families. 
 
Stretch forth Your hand, dear God, and bless all those who have been impacted by this hurricane.  Thank you for the first responders who are risking their lives to save others at this very moment.  Thank you also for the many, many people of good will, everyday heroes who have rescued and assisted the numerous victims and their families.  O' Lord, God of mercy and compassion, please protect all who are still in danger, and bring to safety those who are missing.  Please care in a special way for the elderly, the sick and those who were already homeless or without support and resources, before this disaster. 
 
Dear God, we ask this in the name of Jesus, who calmed the storms on the Sea of Galilee with one word.  We trust You and thank You.  Amen
 
Jesus rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, Quiet! Be still."   The wind ceased and there was great calm
-Mark 4:39
