A Prayer for Hurricane Victims

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Asking God to calm the storm…

Daily Express

Florence, Katrina,
Andrew, Camille,
Harvey and Sandy (and more)
have ransacked our lives
with abusive intent
and left (in their wake) untold horror.

Their fast, spinning winds
and their strong, surging surf
have relentlessly heartlessly wrenched
the calm peace of mind
from these poor stressed-out souls
as they leave hapless victims all drenched.

O God, for the victims
of hurricanes' wrath,
I pray for Your presence to calm.
Please rescue the missing
and heal those who grieve
with Your life-giving long-lasting balm.
