Lord and Holy Protector, like the disciples who were caught in their tiny boat in the midst of a mighty storm:
We come to beg Your Help.
We are fearful as we are surrounded by danger.
We feel helpless and small before the great power of this storm which is beyond our control.
While everything seems dark and dangerous, we place our trust in You, our Lord and God.
Sheltered here in our home, we are also shielded by Your Love against all that might harm us.
We know that You hear all prayers; so we now, filled with confidence, lift up our petitions to You, our God.
Lord, we fear for our home, for our lives and for all we hold dear.
Your Sacred Blessing is upon this home and upon each of us as well.
We are secure in the power of that blessing.
May the saving power of the Cross of Your Son, Jesus, encircle us and our home.
May all evil, all harm and injury, be repelled by that Sacred Sign of the Cross.
May the light of this candle be for us a holy sign of Your Divine Presence that fills our home in the midst of this danger.
Lord and Creator of Storms and of Rainbows, be with us in this time of danger.
