Salva nos ab Devestation Pater
Hurricane Sandy has been ripping about the Eastern seaboard. Leaving total destruction in it's wake. Fierce, awesome, powerful and utterly terrifying. I don't like these shocking moments that show the fragility of life and in all honesty when asked why God would allow something like this to happen and take innocent lives, I have no answer.
I've looked deep into the whole of Creation, yet this is still a mystery. It has left me deeply shaken, unable to eat, sleep or really even function. I feel every death, all the terror and stress. I absorb it all as if I am some sort of giant sponge that attracts the souls of the terrified.
My love for you oh Lord, as a Lamb of God and a daughter of your glorious creation. Please, help me to understand your tool of destruction.
Please Lord, watch over those directly effected. Welcome those who have lost their lives into your glorious kingdom.
Lord, I pray for answers, I pray for perspective, I pray for your infinite mercy .
We are your children Lord, forever in your service.
