PLEASE PRAY for rain for Alberta, and lots of it; please pray for each and every emergency responder, and volunteer; please pray that everybody evacuates to safety.

And why? What Rex said.

Oh, and PM Hair, this is actual news, and something in your imperial lap, so don’t break anyone or hurt anything. And, as always, IT’S NOT ABOUT YOU.

Plus, Mr. “Karma guy“? What next, dancing around on the ashes of people’s hopes and dreams, peeing on the ruins? Humanity 101 FAIL.

So saith,

Teh Binks

During a catastrophe, for volunteers beginning service

Almighty God, merciful Father, your thoughts are not our thoughts, and your ways are not our ways. Keep all of us and all who have been afflicted by this calamity from despair and do not let our faith be destroyed by the hopelessness we encounter. Sustain and comfort us. Direct all our efforts to attend the injured, console the bereaved, and protect the helpless. Deliver any who are still in danger and bring hope and healing that we may find relief and restoration. Through Jesus Christ, your Son and our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

For Rescue Workers

Merciful Father, we command to your loving keeping all who work to bring rescue and relief especially the firefighter, police, paramedics, medical personnel, and volunteers, all who are helping, Give them courage in danger, skill in difficulty, and compassion in service. Sustain them with bodily strength and calmness of mind that they may perform their work to the well-being of those in need so that lives may be saved and communities restored. Through Jesus Christ, your Son and our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
