Prayer for the Bahamas

God, walk through the storm
as it sits, stalling
above those already battered.
to be with those who are frightened,
waiting for help, weeping.
Guide rescuers,
comfort those who grieve,
sustain those who know
that there will come rebuilding,
long work, mutual care,
and lead people to one another.

We hear a chef is making
ten thousand sandwiches
in the midst of wind and deluge,
let those of us far away
match this love
with our gifts of hope.
amen.
