Pray for the people of Florida
all the elements of nature
obey your command.
Calm the storms
and hurricanes that threaten us
and turn our fear of your power
into praise of your goodness.
through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.
(Pray also for those in Mexico already stricken by Hurricane Wilma.)
