Reverend Gene Hemrick

Washington Theological Union

Date of Prayer: 10/30/2012

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Lord, we pray for the victims of Hurricane Sandy, especially those who lost their lives, the displaced elderly, those with children, the millions without power, and those who have lost homes and businesses.

We pray that as in the past we have responded generously to those in dire need, all means available to us will be used to normalize life and restore calm. May we imitate Your loving heart in this moment of disaster and come together as one––the divine oneness that has the power to overcome all. Amen.
