This season has seen some of the worst hurricanes on record, and there may be more to come.
As a church, we’re standing by our neighbors who have been affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria and Hurricane Harvey, and we are ready to assist in additional locations as disaster strikes. The road to recovery is long, and Lutheran Disaster Response will be there to accompany those affected in every phase.
Your gifts will be used entirely (100 percent) for direct response. Together, we can help provide immediate and long-lasting support for those whose homes have been devastated or who have been otherwise affected by hurricanes. Give now to support survivors of disasters in Texas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Puerto Rico, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, the U.S. Virgin Islands and other locations impacted by powerful hurricanes.
A prayer for those affected by recent hurricanes...
God, Our Safety and Strength, hear our prayers this day for all suffering the destruction from Tropical Storm Harvey. Come to the aid of all experiencing devastating flooding and give skill and courage to emergency responders. Ease the rainfall that continues to threaten and direct those coordinating rescue and relief efforts. Stir up abundant support from those who watch the rising waters from afar. We ask this in the name of Jesus, who walked amid the storm and the Spirit who never leaves or forsakes us. Amen.
