Prayer for Victims of Hurricane Sandy from Catholic Relief Services

For Those Impacted by Hurricane Sandy Prayer

God of Mercy,
You who created the universe and ordered it through a simple command, we humbly come to you today as your beloved children. We pray for those affected by Hurricane Sandy in the Caribbean and Northeastern United States. Grant us the faith and perseverance to trust in you and seek first your Kingdom.

Above all, may this natural disaster serve as a reminder of the frailty of our lives and our interdependence. May we stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters affected by Hurricane Sandy in the U.S. and the Caribbean, and may our day to day living always reflect our responsibility towards the poor and humanity as a whole.

We pray, through your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever.

Sample Petitions:

Use any of these as part of the Prayer of the Faithful in Liturgy or a prayer service.

For the Church universal, that we honor our call to solidarity and respond with lives of compassion and healing for the poor and all of creation.
We pray...

For government officials and relief workers in the affected areas of Hurricane Sandy, that God will provide them the wisdom and resources to respond effectively to those in need.
We pray...

For our extended family in the Caribbean and Northeastern United States who suffered from Hurricane Sandy, may they find the strength and comfort to overcome the challenges they face.
We pray...
