Prayers for the flooding in Western Europe


God who always walks across water,
come to the people of Germany,
Luxembourg, Belgium,
Switzerland, the Netherlands,

Tenderly reach out a hand
for those who grieve
so that they do not sink.

Get into the small boats of fear
of those who wait for 1300 missing.

Become the shoreline of hope
for those who work through the night
rescuing, searching,
providing shelter, food,
fresh water, medical supplies.

For those in evacuation shelters
seeing nothing a future of cloud,
give peace-be-still to anxiety,
and grow faith large enough
to find a sun in tomorrow.

amen.
