O Lord of the waters of creation
We are awed by the power and majesty of the oceans, seas and rivers.
We give thanks to you for the water we have to drink; for the skills we have been given by you to channel the power of the wind and the waves.
We remember before you those affected by flood, cyclone and hurricane.
We ask you to remind us, as we drink, of what we can do for those for whom water is less friendly.
A number of people have asked about the Methodist response to the floods. If congregations wish to respond with a donation, contributions can be sent to the Arthur Rank Addington Fund, 9 Barford Exchange, Wellesbourne Road, Barford, Warwick CV35 8AQ. Tel: 01926 620135.
