Prayer for Sri Lanka in the midst of flooding and mudslides
Lord, today we pray for Sri Lanka as the island nation faces the worst flooding and mudslides in over 10 years. We pray for the hundreds of thousands of people who have been displaced. Provide them with safety, food, clean water, and peace in their hearts. We pray for the almost 100 people who are missing. Lord, help them be accounted for quickly. If they are in perilous circumstances, send people quickly to their aid, and do miracles to rescue some if needed. We pray for the thousands who are grieving as hundreds of people have died. May people rally together to find peace and comfort in each other and, most of all, in you. We do ask that the weather conditions calm, so that the floodwaters can begin to recede. And, Lord, give the people of Sri Lanka courage and determination as they soon begin the rebuilding process. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
