A prayer for our devastated communities from the Rev Keith Garner
Lord of all compassion and power, be with those who have journeyed through recent weeks and everyone who continues to experience the trauma of the bushfires.
Minister to the needs of mind and spirit, body and circumstance; and heal those who need to know a special measure of your peace.
We thank you for those in our Rural Fire Service and other disaster agencies, who have displayed courage and commitment.
Almighty and ever-loving God, add to the comfort of your grace, a strength and resolve to be drawn together with fresh purpose as we anticipate rebuilding our communities.
These prayers we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
