God, you still the storms and are a very present help in trouble.
We pray for all those suffering the effects of Hurricane Dorian.
Bring comfort to the afflicted and strength to those who come to their aid. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer. 

Hurricane Dorian has hit with devastating force, leading to major damage and a growing number of reported deaths in the Bahamas, and threatening the Carolinas with dangerous winds and storm surge. 

In the Bahamas, where the impact of the hurricane has been devastating, Lutheran Disaster Response and the Florida-Bahamas Synod are collaborating to assess the immediate need for relief and recovery. Lutheran Disaster Response is also in communication with the South Carolina Synod, the North Carolina Synod, Lutheran Services Carolinas and other partners who are preparing to respond. 

With your support, Lutheran Disaster Response can provide survivors of this hurricane and others like it with immediate relief and can accompany them on the long road to recovery. Your gifts designated for “Hurricane response” will be used entirely (100%) for direct response until it is complete. Together, we can support those whose lives have been impacted by hurricanes.
