We wish for our friends and loved ones to remain safe in these areas where wind, water, or flame threatens.
We are thankful for first responders who are doing all that they can to meet the urgent needs of their communities.
We are sad to learn that people have lost homes.
And we can't know exactly how or when these crises will pass, but our hearts cry out and look for comfort, as they have countless times before, in the practice of prayer.
Let us pray:
Rev. Durrell Watkins, D.Min.
