Prayer for Hurricane Season
Posted by. Tre' Williams on Saturday, January 5, 2013
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 the 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 the passing of time. O Virgin, Star of the Sea, Our
Beloved Mother, we ask you to plead with your Son in 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 heavenly
Jerusalem where a stormless eternity awaits us. Amen.
