Moments of Prayer in Sandy’s Wake

October 31, 2012 § Leave a comment

Even as the sun strains to shine again, making the storm’s memory surreal, I want to put my prayers out there for everyone who’s suffered at the hands of Hurricane Sandy, and for those who are still in her wide, destructive path ~ and I welcome anyone who’d like to join me, in whatever form your prayer takes.

We’re in New Jersey, which has been among the hardest hit…. and while (with enormous gratitude) we are safe, many have been less fortunate and my heart goes out to them all up and down the coast and now reaching inland to the midwest. These are not ordinary times and this has been no ordinary storm.

Though our prayers may seem miniscule in the face of such force ~ a force that once again reminds us of how little control we have ~ prayers are worthy and needed. They may not stop a tunnel from flooding or a building from toppling, but in some unseen but powerful way, I believe (and hope) they matter. So, prayers to all, and huge, bountiful blessings to those who are able and willing to roll up their sleeves and brave the elements to help. They are heroes, all.
