Lord, please be with the rescue workers and keep them safe
as they make heroic efforts in dangerous situations to rescue those in trouble.
Lord, please be with everyone waiting to be rescued,
keep them safe, and bring help to them soon.
God, bless each and every person affected by this storm and surround them
with Your love and protection.
Let them know there are millions of us out here praying
for them and their loved ones and doing what we can to help.
We give You praise and glory forever, Lord, and know that even in the darkest hours,
You are always with us.
