Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Praise Him all creatures here below
Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts
Praise Father, Son & Holy Ghost.

Father we thank you for this new day and the opportunity it gives us to serve you. We lift up the people of Haiti as they endure the onslaught of Hurricane Matthew. Keep us from seeing their trial as the price of our safe passage. Help us to remember those in Jamaica and in Haiti who were in need even before this storm and show us how we might serve you in them. Keep us always open to the leading of your Spirit. In Christ's name we pray.
