Before The Storms Touch Down: A Prayer

For Those Touched By The Havoc Of Hurricane Gustav:

Lord, there are a lot of idiots in this world. To be honest with you, sometimes I feel like I just can't take them any more. Lord, there are people in this world who claim to be yours that are harsh, crude and nonsensical. They attribute evil, hate, suffering, pain and death to you. Why? Why do they do that? God, as the hurricane presses forward and before the storms touch down here, I pray that you will give your people a sprit of gentleness and wisdom. Lord, may we weep, as the writer of old did on the shores of Babylon, weep with these people instead of heaping undue judgment upon their heads (and yours). God be with those who have already lost loved ones from this massive storm and protect those who have not. We cry out Lord: "Be a balm to the souls of many". Our Lord, who is not in the storm, in the midst of all of this chaos and tragedy, may Your name be glorified. In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, amen.
