Prayer for evacuation of St. Vincent after volcanic eruptions (AP Photo/Orvil Samuel)

Lord God, we pray for the evacuation of the island of St. Vincent after its two volcanic eruptions Friday. We are thankful so many people have already been successfully evacuated and that Royal Caribbean cruise ships have been helping with the process. We pray that everyone necessary will be evacuated before anyone gets hurt and that the process will be calm, smooth and efficient. We pray for evacuees to find safe housing and healthy environments in their new locations. Lord, we also pray for the 20,000 people who fled to the northern part of the island. May they treat each other with kindness and consideration. May they be hospitably welcomed by the residents of this part of the island. May they be gracious guests. Finally, we ask your blessing on all those who are assisting amid this situation, including Royal Caribbean for transporting evacuees and delivering much-needed relief supplies to St. Vincent. Bless kindness and generosity amid this challenging time for this island. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
