By Rev. Nancy Neal
God of grace and God of mercy,
Our hearts break as we watch stories on the news,
Of dangerous flood, of lost lives, and rains that won’t stop.
We trust that you are present in the desperation and hopelessness that abounds.
Transform our broken hearts so that we might be agents of your love in the coming days and months.
God in your mercy, hear our prayer.
Thirteen million people across 58 counties in Texas have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey, including many Bread for the World members. Many of our partner denominations and organizations are responding to the disaster. They are bringing hope to people, particularly to those most vulnerable in this storm.
Some are working through national agencies, while others are working diligently with local expressions of the church. We have highlighted several of our partners’ national efforts below if you would like to help.
We are proud to partner with these denominations and organizations in our work to end hunger.
