Father in heaven,
Be present in Houston today:
For those who suffer,
For those who are displaced, and
For those whose lives will never be the same.
We pray that family and friends who are separated will be safely reunited.
We pray for the leaders of the communities that are impacted, for the leaders of the state of Texas, and for those who guide and direct federal assistance.
We pray especially for those who are first to respond and the last to leave.
May your mercy and grace abound.
