A Prayer in Bushfire Season

We thank you, living God,

for the fire fighters and emergency service workers,

both volunteers and professionals, 

who risk their own safety

to protect people and property.

Bless and protect them as they serve us in times of crisis.

Give them skill and care

as they work through fatigue, fear and danger.

To every community now shadowed by the smoke of bushfires,

give a strong spirit, generous neighbours,

and the resources they need

to care for one another and for the land.

Refresh us in our faith

that nothing can separate us from your love

in Christ Jesus our Lord,

in whose name we pray.
