Oklahoma Tornado Prayer

FCJ - T.E.A.M.

The FCJ Centre prays  “Our Hearts and Prayers are with the people of Oklahoma.”

Mighty God, You call us into action to be Living Hope for the world.  You have called us to love our neighbor as ourselves, to lift up those in need, through prayer and the sharing of our time, talents, finances, and our very selves.  Guide us in the best ways to be Living Hope for those who are heartbroken, for those who are mourning, for those who have lost everything.  Help us to be Your servants, to be the Living Hope this world needs.  Through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Friend, who gave His life for us and calls us to be the Hope for the World, we pray always.  Amen (adapted from http://rev-o-lution.org)

  1. Just two years ago, a devastating tornado swept through Tuscaloosa, Alabama and badly damaged the FCJ convent here. We lived with our Companions in Mission, Steve and Judy Scully, for three months while we house-hunted. We are now settled in a lovely new house, once more surrounded by huge trees too big to wrap your arms around the trunk and beautiful gardens. The news of the Oklahoma tornado made my heart fill with desires for the people there: for healing, for support from family and friends, for speedy transitioning into a new life, for sympathy as they grieve the loss of comfort, convenience, trees and gardens, places that now exist only in memory…… May the Holy Spirit strengthen them as they move forward into a future that no doubt feels somewhat scary today…..
