Help us, dear God. Help us.

Pastor Ralph J. Mineo

Dear God,

Here I sit at my computer, safe and sound, dry, with my basic needs cared for, surrounded by possessions (too many, really). I watch the news of thousands and thousands of sisters and brothers in the midst of a horrific storm and catastrophic flooding. So many are unsafe and in danger, drenched, struggling to get basic needs filled, possessions and homes destroyed. Catastrophe, even death, surround our sisters and brothers in Texas. Dear God, my mind reels as I think of all the catastrophe and death there and in other parts of our nation, and in the world.

Help us, dear God. Help us.

Thankful for their courage and compassion, give strength and wisdom to first responders and government officials, and all who are seeking to help others. Keep them safe, fill them with your grace, guide them to those most in need. With such intense emotions flying all around like a storm, wrap your loving arms around those who are afraid. Send them rescuers. Bless those concerned and worried about family members and friends who are in danger.

Help us, dear God. Help us.

For those of us who are safe and sound, inspire us to help as we can. Fill our hearts with prayer-connected-love. For those of us who are comfortable, guide us and inspire us to help as we can. Remove selfishness from our hearts, that we would share some of our resources to help those whose lives have been overturned.

Help us, dear God. Help us.

Draw this nation together by your divine love and compassion. Bind us together no matter our different beliefs and unbeliefs. Send a powerful storm of your grace to wipe away from our hearts and souls all hatreds and prejudices, angers and dissensions. Give us a true binding-togetherness to make us stronger, more compassionate, more sacrificial.

Help us, dear God. Help us.

Send hope and healing to all those affected by this and every storm, every disaster, that is striking us in these days. Send us an awareness of your presence, of your love.

Help us, dear God. Help us.
