Prayer for Hurricane Irma and recovering from Hurricane Harvey

Prayer for Hurricane Irma and recovering from Hurricane Harvey
Fr. Bob Jones, SM

Good and Gracious God,
Scripture tells us that the wind and waves obeyed your Only Begotten Son. Because of this, Jesus was able to calm the raging sea. But even more so, he calmed the fear of the disciples as they were being tossed about in the storm.
Now, Lord, we ask that you calm the fears of our brothers and sisters from Marianist schools in Texas who are recovering from the effects of Hurricane Harvey, and those from Florida and Puerto Rico who are in the path of Hurricane Irma. May you keep them safe and give them peace in the days ahead. May we respond with generosity to assist them in their time of need.
Mary, Star of the Sea, guide us to the safe harbor that is the loving embrace of your Son. Continue to walk beside us as we weather the storms that arise in our lives.
We ask this through the intercession of our holy Founder, Blessed William Joseph Chaminade, and in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
