O Master, Lord our God, Who by Thy Hypostatic and Unoriginate Word, and Thy life-giving Spirit, Equal-in-honor, hast brought all things out of nothingness into being, Who hast established the sand as bounds to the sea and did set in place the hills and valleys by Thy rule, Who hast measured Heaven with a span and holds the earth in the hollow of Thy hand, Who has given this creation measures and rules, boundaries and compositions, and visible and physical orders, Who also, as Thy gesture, has ineffably put in place changes of time and returns of the sun, and the disclosing of elements, and Who directs them to an unalterable and unchangeable state:
Do Thou show unto us in this time of storm and tribulation, Thy compassionate love and quickly return the natural order of creation. Constrain the storm and cut apart the disturbance of the air. Command the winds to render a timely and harmonious breath. Rebuke the waves of the sea and the river bank floods. Lessen the downpour of rains. Protect us all in this time of danger and trial. Remember not our sins and transgressions but be merciful to us and Thy creation.
O Lover of Mankind and Master, by Thine unequaled love for mankind, Who, by Thy good pleasure and the activity of Thy Holy Spirit, did will Thine Only-Begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, become Man and sail together with Thy holy disciples and apostles, Who did rebuke the stormy winds and did command the waves of the sea to be calm; Do Thou Thyself, now, also. soothe every contrary wind, clam the waves of the sea, re-direct flood waters, appease the hurricane and restore the good order of nature.
May Thy Holy Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, be glorified, now and always, unto the ages of ages. Amen.
We did a prayer for the hurricane at the end of Liturgy too.
Thanks for this. It's coming tomorrow.
