Prayers for Emergency Preparedness

Simply Ready Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ, son of the living God, by your life and death have set us free from all bondage to fear and anxiety. We now humbly accept your peace, serenity and trust in the Father’s love and providence for us. We ask you now for divine wisdom to do that which is prudent and is in accordance with your divine will. Grant us a heart like yours, wholly obedient to the Father’s will, loving and generous to others in need, and patient with those whom you will send to us to train. We ask these things in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Prayer in Times of Stress

Grant calmness and control of thought to those who are facing uncertainty and anxiety; let their hearts stand fast, believing in the Lord. Be Thou all things to all men, knowing each one and his petition, each house and its need. For the sake of Jesus Christ. Amen

Prayer for First Responders

Almighty God, whose son Jesus Christ healed the sick and brought comfort to the weary;
give strength and courage to the men and women of the emergency services across the globe. Grant to them your love and presence in the heart of danger, sorrow, pain and anguish, that they may continue to find life and hope in the midst of destruction. This we pray in Jesus’ name, Amen
