Harvest Sanctuary at Earlston Church 9th October 2016 (c) JRen

Holy One
All over this world you gave us
people are in trouble
storms and floods and natural disasters wreak havoc; create mayhem; and leave behind grieving people; lost, confused, distressed.
All over this world you gave us
people are troubled
the storms and floods of political outrage send ripples across the globe; they wreak havoc, create mayhem and leave behind confusion, distress and disbelief.

In these strange days
be with us
For those whose vision is clouded bring clarity
For those who see stark reality and fear – bring reassurance and peace
For those who are so sure there is one way only – bring openness
For those who seek to rebuild, to renew, to follow your ways, bring determination and strength

And, dear One; Precious Love: help us to be thankful; show us the glimpses of your glory wherever they may be
So that in all things we may know your presence, guiding and leading through the mess into the glory of hope
