In anticipation of Hurricane Matthew

For Safety from a Natural Cataclysm

Jesus Stilling the Tempest, by Gustave Doré

Jesus Stilling the Tempest (Mark iv:39) by Gustave Doré

O God, who makest the clouds thy chariot, and who walkest upon the wings of the wind: Preserve us, we beseech thee, from storm and tempest, earthquake and fire. Keep us safe in our homes, and give strength to them that succour those in peril, that we may pass through the tribulations of Hurricane Matthew without harm to body or soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

First used on Sunday, October 28th, 2012 (The Feast of St Simon and St Jude, Trinity XXI, and the Feast of Christ the King), in anticipation of “Frankenstorm”, the predicted collision of Hurricane Sandy, a nor’easter, and the first effects of the end of the current b’ak’tun of the Mayan Calendar.
