Dear Heavenly Father, this is a time of flooding, tornadoes, and storms in areas of the U.S. and northern Mexico. Please grant protection for your children, and keep their homes, churches, and places of work safe and secure. Help those who are grieving loved ones, or have lost their homes, to turn to you in this time of loss. Give us faith to endure every storm in this life, knowing that you love us and will never leave us alone. In the name of our risen Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.
