Bushfires in New South Wales

You will have seen the news on the bushfires in New South Wales. People have lost their homes, their vehicles and pretty much everything they owned.

Some have even lost their lives. 

If you are able to donate any money towards relief efforts, the Red Cross would be grateful to take your call.

Call: 1800 811 700
Mail: Send a cheque or money order to: Australian Red Cross Supporter Service, GPO Box 2957, Melbourne VIC 8060

And please pray for those affected by, and fighting, the fires. 

 

Prayer for those affected by bushfire


All things look to you, O Lord,
to give them their food in due season:
look in mercy on your people,
and hear our prayer for those whose lives and possessions are threatened by fire.
Give protection and wisdom to fire fighters and other emergency service personnel.
Encourage our generosity to those who suffer loss.
In your mercy restore your creation and heal our land.
So guide and bless your people,
that we may enjoy the fruits of the earth
and give you thanks with grateful hearts
through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Amen.
