All those who have suffered terrible losses in our country and around the world. Remember those in Louisiana, who have suffered from devastating flooding. Remember those in California, who have lost everything in the wildfires. Remember those who are suffering silently from tragedies and loss we know nothing about.
Compassionate Goddess, we pray for those who have been devastated by
the fires and the floods that are ravaging our world.
We remember those who have lost their lives and their families.
We hold in our hearts the brothers, sisters, mothers & fathers
forever changed by these losses.
Bring them consolation and comfort. Surround them
with our prayers for strength. Bless those who have survived and heal
their memories of trauma and devastation. May they have the courage
to face the long road of grief and healing ahead.
We ask your blessing on all those who have lost their homes, their
livelihoods, their security and their hope. Bless the work of relief
agencies and those providing emergency assistance. May their work
be guided by the grace and strength that comes from You alone.
Help us to respond with generosity in prayer, in assistance, in aid to the
best of our abilities. Keep our hearts focused on the needs of those
affected, even after the crisis is over.
We ask this in Your Divine name, Almighty Goddess.
