Prayer for the Cold

God, my heat was out today, and my Northern teeth chattered in 50 degree heat and my hands and feet started to ache with the cold.

Please be with all those experiencing the storm.

Prayers for the powerless

the homeless

the cold

Source of Life, give resources to all those who need them today. Help them to find ways to eat and hibernate. Help them to figure out how to move or stay safely.

As our vortex becomes more and more polar in nature, help us we pray.

God help those of us who don’t have the infrastructure, personally or fiscally or civically, to withstand the cold.

Help us and our neighbors neighbors to reach out, let any and all warmth be shared and may we be able to safely depend upon one another.

Source of Life: help all of us who need to, to be able to weather the storm we pray. In the name of the encouraging, creative and loving Holy Spirit we pray.

Amen.

Pastor Katy has enjoyed ministry at New Covenant for 7 years, where the church has solidified its community focus. Prior to that she studied both Theology and Christian Formation at Princeton Theological Seminary. She also served as an Assistant Chaplain at Trenton Psychiatric Hospital and as the Christian Educational Coordinator at Bethany Presbyterian at Bloomfield, NJ. She enjoys working within and connecting to the community, is known to laugh a lot during service, and tells as many stories as possible. Pastor Katy loves reading Science Fiction and Fantasy, theater, arts and crafts, music, playing with children and sunshine, and continues to try to be as (w)holistically Christian as possible. "Publisher after publisher turned down A Wrinkle in Time," L'Engle wrote, "because it deals overtly with the problem of evil, and it was too difficult for children, and was it a children's or an adult's book, anyhow?" The next year it won the prestigious John Newbery Medal. Tolkien states in the foreword to The Lord of the Rings that he disliked allegories and that the story was not one.[66] Instead he preferred what he termed "applicability", the freedom of the reader to interpret the work in the light of his or her own life and times.

  1. This is wonderful and I feel that it is so appropriate for all those members of my family who are in need of this prayer! Is it acceptable if I send it to them on FB? I will of course name the one who posted it Katy! SINCERELY, SHARON KERMES
