Prayer After A Thunderstorm




Almighty God, In many ways our lives are like those thunderstorms we moved in and out of this morning.
Sometimes things run smoothly and sometimes winds and sea batter us.
We did not see the sun or know when the lightning would stop streaking down at us.
It's the same for all of us tonight, for none of our lives run exactly parallel courses, but sooner or later we all experience the same things.
So Father, if this is a happy night, we offer thanks.
If it is a difficult time, we pray for reassurance.
We are all Your children, unique and individual, and we pray that together we will be faithful to one another, true to the trust placed in us and comforted by the grace that you hold out to us.
For even though we live among the storms, we know that because of you, we will see the sun again.
