Gustav Prayer

For Those Affected by Hurricane Gustav
by Josh Thomas (taken from here)

O God, we pray for the victims of Hurricane Gustav in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, Cuba and the Gulf Coast of the United States. Many of these areas have already been battered by storms of poverty, hunger and official neglect; aid them with your mighty power. Comfort all those who mourn, restore all those who suffer loss, and help those of us who live in safety to reach out to them in service; in the name of Jesus, who understands our every suffering, and the Holy Spirit, who draws us ever closer in unity with you. Amen.
