PRAYER FOR PROTECTION FROM HURRICANES
God, our Father,
Creator and Lord of the Universe,
you have set the earth on its foundation
and all elements of nature obey your
command. We humbly beseech you
to keep us safe from all dangers
and to calm the storms that threaten us.
May we be secure
in your loving protection
and serve you always
with grateful hearts.
We ask this through our Lord,
Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy spirit, one God
forever and ever.
