In the aftermath of Tropical Storm Matthew and as it has developed into a Hurricane and approaches Jamaica and other land mass let us continue to pray:
O Heavenly Father as the hurricane season is here we are frightened by our knowledge of the possible devastation of storms, hurricanes and other natural disasters and by our helplessness in the face of them. We pray O Father that you may keep us safe and all who stand in harms way.
Loving Father help us to know and to be confident that if disaster comes our way that you are ever present with us, and teach us to cope and afterwards to respond with love and care for others. And if we are spared and others are affected we pray that help may be given to them speedily and this may be turned into an opportunity to strengthen the bonds of love and service which bind men and nations together through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
With every good wish and God’s Blessings!
The R . Rev’d C. Leopold Friday
Bishop of the Windward Islands
