Prayer For Bad Weather
Help Lord! This disaster is engulfing us! We are overwhelmed. We cry out to You for help. We anxiously seek Your protection and refuge as the ruthless forces of nature threaten to destroy us. We thank You that You are our strong tower we can run to You and be saved. We humbly ask You to subdue this fierce danger. Reach down from heaven and rescue us. Amen.
Heavenly Father, You are our hiding place from the storm and the rain. You are our shelter and our covering. We ask You for preservation from this raging tempest. Please keep all those in the path of this storm safe and defend their homes from damage. Bring peace and protection and provision, we ask. Thank You for Your great compassion and mercy for Your children. Amen.
Lord, we give thanks to You, for You are good; Your faithful love endures forever. When the winds and the waves rise, and we cringe in terror, we cry out to You in our distress, knowing You can calm the storm to a whisper and still the waves. Please draw near, and be our safety. We praise You for Your great love and the wonderful things You have done for us. Amen.
Oh Lord, You are my Light and my Salvation. Why should I fear? You are the Stronghold of my life. Why should I be afraid? Even though all the elements of nature advance against me, to devour my home and my family, my heart will not fear. I will be confident in Your salvation. I ask that You hide me in the shelter of Your wings. Be merciful to me and answer me in Your compassion. Amen.
God, my Protector, I keep my eyes on You, through this furious storm. My soul trusts in You, and I know it will be well. I ask You to protect my home and my family from the elements. I rely on Your grace, Your mercy, and Your love. I ask that You will stretch forth Your hand and break the power of this mighty storm, for the wind and waves still know Your name. Amen.
Oh God, our Rock, You are our shelter when storms come our way. We are secure, no matter what news we hear of danger. You are our rock and our defense. We will not be alarmed or fearful. When the wind rages around us, we have our safe retreat in You. You alone are our refuge, be ever near us, we pray. Keep us safe through this time. Amen.
O God of earth and heaven,
nature and all that you have made are truly wonderful:
give us grace not to take your creation for granted,
and teach us to cherish all of your gifts.
Help us to remember that we cannot control the oceans, the mountains, or the weather. And keep us firm in the belief that ever since the time of Noah, you do not send floods, make the earth shake, or dispatch terrible weather, as warnings or punishments upon us.
So we pray that, as this hurricane approaches land, our homes, and our brothers and sisters in our region, you will shelter all in its path. Watch over us, our loved ones, our friends, and fellow human beings, many of whom are facing evacuation. Guard us all as we prepare. Give us strength, courage, and resolve to ride out this storm; and hear their prayers and ours, that we may be blessed with goodness and spared from harm.
Blessed are you, Source of life and nature, whose great power and strength fill our world and inspire us to be strong in the face of all of life's difficulties.
All this we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord, who calmed the seas, and calms the storms of our hearts. 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. Amen.
