LCMS Worship provides “A Petition for the California Wildfires” for congregations to use in worship services this weekend to pray for those affected by the California wildfires.

All Holy One, as Your Son stood with the three children in the fiery furnace, protected them and brought them through the flames in safety, so may His mercy be poured out on all who are in danger or suffering loss due to the wildfires that continue to rage in California. Mercifully remember all those whose lives and property are threatened, especially those who place their own lives in danger to save the lives and property of others. Grant Your comfort to those who are mourning and to those who anxiously await word on the fate of loved ones. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.
