Bible verses, prayers and stories for comfort and hope
- Posted on Sep 13, 2018
Millions of people are preparing for Hurricane Florence, a hurricane heading toward the east coast. Expected to hit the Carolinas on Thursday, Florence has been called "extremely dangerous" by the National Hurricane Center and has already caused 1.5 million people to evacuate in North and South Carolina.
With a storm of this magnitude, there's always fear and uncertainty. Even those not directly affected are worried about family, friends, and loved ones in the storm’s path.
These have been anxious and frightening days for many.
We know that in times of fear, anxiety, and uncertainty, we can turn to the Bible and to prayer, which have sustained people for centuries. They offer us find comfort and hope.
We have collected some beloved collections of prayers and Bible verses below, with the hope they will sustain you during these days.
We have grouped these collections by the topics they address most directly. Under the heading of stress, we have also added two stories that offer practical advice from experts. One focuses on coping with disaster from a distance and the other offers advice on talking with children.
We hope these stories bring you comfort, and we invite you to submit your prayers here.
