God of All,
Watch over everyone in the path of Irma.
We pray for the people of Barbuda, Cuba,
And all the victims of this storm.
Grant them solace, comfort and consolation,
Blessing and renewal.
May a world of justice, righteousness and mercy
Come swiftly to their aid.
We pray for the people of Florida
Grant them safety as the tempest
Engulfs their homes and their lives.
Protect them. Shield them. Guard them.
God of All,
Grant peace of mind to those in fear.
Grant food and clothing,
Warmth and shelter to those in need.
Bless emergency and rescue workers with the resources they need
As they risk their lives for the sake of our families, communities and friends.
Grant healing to those who are sick or injured.
Bless us with common sense throughout the squall,
And with kinship and cooperation when the storm passes.
G-d of awe and wonder,
Our Rock and our Refuge,
See us through the gale
And watch over us through the night.
See us through the aftermath,
And watch over us in the days ahead.
Blessed are You, our Rock and our Shelter.
