A prayer for communities affected by flooding

For people battered by forceful storms
For communities battling rising floods
For emergency services stretched to the limit
We pray 

For farmers losing straw and crops
For shopkeepers losing high street  trade 
For repeat victims losing strength and hope 
We pray

For resilience and resolve to change
For impatience with using flood plains
For commitment to protect riverbanks and coasts
We pray

In Jesus’ name we pray

Amen

 

The Revd Barbara Glasson, President of the Methodist Conference
