A storm passes through many states. Help us to hold fast through the storm as the hurricane swirls over and around us with limited damage, hardship, and anxiety, preferably none at all. Father, in this time of need for those that are alone, for our elderly, for those in remote places send a helping hand, your peace, and your strength. Remind us, all, that through the storm, through the rain you have us in the palm of your hand. Amen.
