What to Pray in Times of Natural Disaster

In times of disaster, natural or otherwise, maybe you struggle with why’s or how to help. Some arrive in the center of the storm, ready to pluck victims from death’s reach. Others use hands, feet, boats, cars, or planes for rescue. So many send food, water, clothing—anything and everything that is needed in the aftermath of a disaster. But any of us—all of us—can give something. And we can all pray. Whether you are a victim or concerned Christian, pray in your own way. And if you’re at a loss for words while staring at so much destruction, here is a prayer you can voice to God:

We Can Pray for Each Other

With the recent hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, and other natural disasters, we all need each other more than ever, and we need to pray for one another. We all need God’s tender mercies and help. Whether you are a victim, a responder, or concerned Christian, please know the above prayer is what I will pray for you. If you have or will help in any way, thank you!

We Can Find Hope in the Lord

May God grant strength, courage, and hope always, but especially in these times of unprecedented natural disaster. You are loved, and you are treasured by our Heavenly Father. You are never forgotten, and you can do all things through Christ who will strengthen you.

Together, we can find hope in the Lord.

We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield (Psalm 33:20, NIV).
