Natural traumatic events—hurricanes, fires, earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes and floods—are strong reminders of how vulnerable we are to the powerful unexpected forces of nature. Whether the loss of a home, or the loss of a loved one, sudden traumatic events shatter a person’s world, destroy what was once familiar and upset the normal sense of safety and stability.
Viewing images of destruction, waiting and worrying about safety of family and friends in these areas, have left many witnesses, observers and others feeling shaken and unsure. Survivors are left splintered, shaken and denuded.
Here is a prayer to say while facing this:
Do not be afraid, for I have redeemed you.
I have called you by your name;
you are mine.
When you walk through the waters, I’ll be
you will never sink beneath the waves.
When the fire is burning all around you,
you will never be consumed by the flames.
When the fear of loneliness is looming,
then remember I am at your side.
You are mine, O my child, I am your Father, and i love you with a perfect love.
