Many waters cannot quench love,
neither can floods drown it.
Song of Solomon 8:7
God of unquenchable love,
We lift up to you each of your children seeking shelter, comfort and care this day. For every family displaced by flooding, every person in search of refuge, we pray your sheltering mercy. And we pray strength and boldness for each of your servants traveling to be of use in the wake of disaster, for each volunteer and administrator, especially for the work of Children’s Disaster Services. God of unquenchable love, receive our prayers and weave them into your work here on earth.
