I posted this prayer on Facebook right when the flooding in Alberta occurred but I forgot to include it here. As people are still dealing with the effects, it’s not too late.
God of all goodness and love,
in whom we can trust in every time of need:
be close to all who live in fear and distress
at this time of flooding in our land.
We pray for wisdom and strength for all who seek to help,
and that through this emergency,
people and communities may be drawn more closely together
in service to one another;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
