Hurricane Prayer

God our Father, You set the earth on its foundation.
Keep us safe from the dangers of hurricanes and storms and let us always feel the presence of your love.
May we be secure in Your protection and serve You 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.
