Acting Diocesan Administrator, the Venerable Lee Bezanson, is encouraging us to pray for the village of Lytton, BC and other communities impacted by wildfires.
Pray with the community of Lytton
O God, you are our refuge and our strength, our help in times of trouble:
Have mercy on the lands and communities devastated by fires,
And especially the people of the village of Lytton and Lytton First Nations.
Have mercy on those who have lost loved ones, homes, and livelihoods.
Protect those who have had to evacuate.
Bless and keep safe all firefighters.
And strengthen those who seek to rebuild hope, that all may face the future without fear.
We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, our Saviour. Amen
