Fires


Fires

California is on fire.
Montana is burning now.
Firefighters are trying
To save this land somehow.

Friends are on alert –
Their belongings packed to go –
To move if necessary.
Move where? Some just don’t know.

We’re here to lend a hand,
But our resources are so slim.
We need the help of rain.
We must simply rely on Him.

No man can can tame the flames
That burn without regard
For whose life is damaged –
Who has lost their home and yard.

No man can stop the spreading
Without help from God above.
But here, at home in comfort,
I can offer hope and love.

I can pray for the firefighters.
I can offer food and shelter,
But I can’t stop the flames,
Nor tame the heat – the swelter!

Lord of Life and All Creation,
Please send us relief in rain.
Take away death and destruction,
And make us beautiful again.

 

Amen?
