Water, Water, Everywhere…
The news is full of storms and flooding and destruction caused by the weather. The people of the Somerset Levels have been hit very badly, and there seems no end to it.
I have been praying for all affected, but sometimes it is hard to find the words to pray for such big events.
The Psalms are often useful here. They contain ancient poetry, covering the whole range of human emotion:
From Psalm 13 – How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever?
From Psalm 46 –
God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,
though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble with its tumult.
