Pray for Japan

18 March 2011

Lord, we pray for those who have been devastated by recent natural disasters. We remember those who have lost their lives so suddenly. We hold in our hearts the families forever changed by loss and grief.
Bring them consolation and comfort. Surround them with our prayers for strength. Bless those who have survived and heal the memories of trauma and devastation. May they have the courage to face the long road of rebuilding ahead.
We ask your blessing on all those who have lost their homes, their livelihoods, their security and hope. Bless the work of relief agencies and those providing emergency assistance. May their work be guided by the grace and strength that comes from You.
Help us to respond with generosity in prayer, in assistance, in aid to the best of our abilities. Keep our hearts focussed on the needs of those affected, even after the crisis is over. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen
