Interfaith Prayer for Healing and Recovery

As we remember the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Maria and the devastation that it brought upon our neighbors in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, we both grieve the devastation and loss of life that occurred, and recognize the ways in which you God are present even in these difficult times and in the midst of this crisis.

As we consider the many needs of the people of these islands, we pray for mercy, comfort, and relief for our brothers and sisters at this time.

As people of faith, we will continue to outstretch our arms in support and ask for the help that is beyond our means.

We pray for the hearts and minds of those in power, that they too might see the needs of your people, and view Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands with eyes of compassion.  

We are standing with them.

Thank you, oh God of many names, for the hope that leads us onward.
