We remember those who have lost their lives so suddenly. We hold in our hearts the families forever changed by grief and loss. Bring them consolation and comfort. Surround them with our prayer for strength. Bless those who have survived and heal their 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 their hope. Bless the work of relief agencies and those proving emergency assistance. May their work be guided by the grace and strength that comes from You alone.

Help us to respond with generosity in prayer, in assistance, in aid to the best of our abilities. Keep our hearts focused on the needs of those affected, even after the crisis is over. We ask this in Jesus’ name.  Amen.

    I desire to read more issues approximately it! I’ve been browsing online more than 3
    hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and
    bloggers made good content as you did, the net
    will be a lot more useful than ever before. Wow!
    This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a totally different topic but it has pretty
    much the same page layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!
