God of rainfall and ruin,
of fortune and misfortune,
of flooding and drought,
of prosperity and peril.
We ask your blessing
on our brothers and sisters in eastern Kentucky,
trying to hang on after another harrowing night.
Grant comfort and consolation
to the families who lost loved ones;
Faith and and fortitude
to the first responders seeking to rescue
fellow human beings from destruction;
Hope and healing
to the injured and disheartened;
Patience and perseverance
to those eagerly waiting to learn
what has happened
or to lend a hand.
Help us to hear the cry to those who need us.
To keep thinking of them
well beyond when the news cycle moves on.
May we heed the call
to show generosity of substance
and of spirit.
Like the survivors of the Great Flood in Genesis,
may our brothers and sisters in eastern Kentucky
be blessed to watch the waters of destruction recede,
to witness homes and towns restored.
May the turmoil of this flooding
come to and end
and may all who are troubled
