A Call to Prayer for Those Affected by Hurricane Beryl

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

As many of you may know, Hurricane Beryl has affected the lives of millions of people in the Caribbean, Mexico, and the southern United States.  I have been in contact with the Rev. Jake Stum, Executive Director of the Anglican Relief and Development Fund (ARDF).  This morning it was estimated that over 2 million people were without power in Texas alone. ARDF is assessing the situation, in touch with local parishes , and will be responding as they determine the needs.

Please join me in praying for those who are in need of help and those who are working to rescue and rebuild.

Almighty God, by your Word you laid the foundations of the earth, set the bounds of the sea, and still the wind and waves. Surround us with your grace and peace, and preserve us through Hurricane Beryl. By your Spirit, lift up those who have fallen, strengthen those who work to rescue or rebuild, and fill us with the hope of your new creation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
