The 14th Annual Day of Prayer For Protection From Hurricanes

was held on June 1st, 2019.  Even as we continue to remember those affected by previous Hurricanes, we lift up prayers for protection from future hurricanes and storms. 

There is only One who can calm the storms in our lives!

and prayers of thanksgiving for many answered prayers

Prayers for June 1st and beyond

God our Father, Creator of the Universe and Lord over all creation, we humbly stand before you as your children in thanksgiving for your loving care and protection. We ask that you keep us safe from all hurricanes which may threaten us in the coming season. Protect us from all fear and anxiety of storms and give us an ardent trust and hope in Your love and mercy. You alone bring peace, calm and safety. Father, we thank you in advance, for You are our only Refuge. We ask this through Jesus Christ Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

----

God, Our Father, Creator and Lord of the universe, You have set the earth on its foundation and all the elements of nature obey Your command. We humbly beseech You to keep us safe from all dangers and calm the storms that threaten us. May we be secure in Your loving protection and serve You always with grateful hearts. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever. Amen.
