Prayer for those Affected by the Floods

Merciful God,

Who has shown to humanity your grace by the story of the safe delivery of Noah's family through the flood:

Look kindly upon all those who have lost much in our area because of the flooding;

May they know your comfort and provision, 

That in their time of need 

You are with them

As you are with us in Jesus Christ, our Emmanuel,

Amen.


If you would like to support financially those in need by the floods, please consider giving towards our Hardship Fund.
