God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.

Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging
(Psalm 46:1-3 NIV).

The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress (Psalm 46:7).

We will not fear though the earth gives way!

Almighty God, during this time of tumult, death, destruction, and fear, please use your people to be a blessing to those who are hurting, displaced, face war, and find themselves homeless ... wherever they may be.

In the name of Jesus, we ask for this power and your blessing. Amen.
