Loving and compassionate God, today we pray in a special way for all of those affected by the devastating fires in Fort McMurray. We ask that you be with all those who have lost homes, possessions and livelihoods. Comfort the evacuees who have been forced from their homes seeking safety and shelter. We pray, too, for all those men and women who are working tirelessly to fight the fires, and for those who provide aid and support to the victims. We ask this, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
