Our Prayer for Haiti

Our friends at PCUSA have shared with us their prayer for Haiti, and we would like to echo their prayers and concerns:

God of compassion

please watch over the people of Haiti,

and weave out of these terrible happenings

wonders of goodness and grace.

Surround those who have been affected by tragedy

with a sense of your present love,

and hold them in faith.

Though they are lost in grief,

may they find you and be comforted.

Guide us as a church

to find ways of providing assistance

that heal wounds and provide hope.

Help us to remember that when one of your children suffers

we all suffer;

through Jesus Christ who was dead, but lives

and rules this world with you. Amen.

(Adapted from Book of Common Worship)
