Support relief and mercy efforts for hurricane victims in Puerto Rico

As federal agencies rush to establish emergency airlift and disaster relief infrastructure for hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico, LCMS World Relief and Human Care, through its LCMS Disaster Response team, is preparing to bring urgent relief and the hope of the Gospel to Puerto Ricans whose lives have been shaken by this most recent disaster.

The utter devastation of Hurricane Maria calls to mind the caring Christians who give so graciously, ensuring Christ’s mercy comes swiftly to those affected by catastrophe. The kindness being shown across the Synod has brought relief to so many, and now the people of Puerto Rico can experience that mercy, kindness and compassion.



Heavenly Father, many in Puerto Rico and other places cry out to You for help, echoing the Psalmist, “Incline your ear to me; rescue me speedily! Be a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me!” We join their voices seeking Your mercy and deliverance in these times of need. Open avenues for aid and help to reach those who need it. Grant patience and provision to those who still seek relief. May all turn to You and find love and forgiveness in Jesus Christ Your Son, our Lord, in whose name we pray. Amen.
