When there is a storm headed your way, you may not always be prepared. These strong prayers for safety during storms will leave your safety in the hands of the Lord.
O God, Master of this passing world, hear the humble voices of your children. The Sea of Galilee obeyed Your order and returned to its former quietude.
You are still the Master of land and sea. We live in the shadow of a danger over which we have no control: the Gulf, like a provoked and angry giant, can awake from its seeming lethargy, overstep its conventional boundaries, invade our land, and spread chaos and disaster.
During this hurricane season we turn to You, O loving Father. Spare us from past tragedies whose memories are still so vivid and whose wounds seem to refuse to heal with passing of time.
O Virgin, Star of the Sea, Our beloved Mother, we ask you to plead with your Son on our behalf, so that spared from the calamities common to this area and animated with a true spirit of gratitude, we will walk in the footsteps of your Divine Son to reach the heavenly Jerusalem, where a stormless eternity awaits us. Amen.
all the elements of nature obey your command.
Calm the storms and hurricanes that threaten us
and turn our fear of your power into praise of your goodness.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.
God of heaven and earth, God who carries our lives and the lives of our whole community in your hands, be with us in the peril of this day/night. Help us to release our anxieties and fears into those same caring hands, knowing in faith that your will for us is life and everlasting good. Send your holy angels to watch over us and guard us. May they spread their holy wings to give us shelter against the storm. For you alone, O God, are all good, all life, all love, and that love is for us; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Almighty God, and creator of all,
like the disciples who were caught in their tiny boat
in the midst of a mighty storm,
we come together to seek Your help.
We are fearful as we are surrounded by danger.
We feel helpless and small
before the great power of this perilous time,
a power which is beyond our control.
While everything seems dark and dangerous,
we place our trust in You, our Lord and God.
Sheltered here in this hospital,
we are also shielded by Your love
against all that might harm us.
We know that You hear all prayers
so we now, filled with confidence,
lift up our petitions to You, our God.
God of awe and wonder,
Our Rock and our Refuge,
See us through the gale
And watch us through the night,
For comfort, security and wellbeing,
So that we may serve You in love.
Graciously hear us, O Lord, when we call upon You,
and grant unto our supplications a calm atmosphere,
that we, who are justly afflicted for our sins,
may, by Your protecting mercy, experience pardon.
Through Christ our Lord.
Lord, we fear for our homes, for our lives and for all we hold dear. Your sacred blessing is upon this hospital and the entire city and upon each of us as well. We are secure in the power of that blessing. May the saving power of the Cross of Your Son, Jesus, encircle us and all our pets.
Protect our patients, their families, and our team members. Repel all evil from this dwelling. Reduce and lessen the destructive power of this hurricane in the entire state.
As you rebuked the wind and calmed the storm battling with your disciples on the sea, may you calm this hurricane that is battling with us right now. May Your Divine Presence fill our dwellings in the midst of this danger. Almighty God who never sleeps nor slumbers, be with us during this time of danger. Amen.
There is nothing natural about a disaster, because You supernaturally control the world and everything in it. You made the world; You created us. With one breath, you can destroy or give life. But You are also a God of grace, mercy, and love. In times like this, Lord, we admit our helplessness. We don’t know what to do, but our eyes are on You. Help us to provide solutions, not blame. Lord, we desperately need You. Amen.
Our Father in Heaven,
through the intercession of Our Lady of Prompt Succor,
spare us during this hurricane season
from all harm.
Protect us and our homes
from all disasters of nature.
Our Lady of Prompt Succor,
hasten to help us.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
