Prayer for Bangladesh

ph2007111501054.jpg

Heavenly Father, who in Your great love and compassion hears the prayers of all Your people and is ever-present with those who walk in the shadow of death. I offer my prayers for all who suffer loss and devastation due to the Bangladesh cyclone disaster.

Grant peace and happiness, for those who have died.
Heal those who are injured.
Comfort those who mourn.
Give hope to those whose hope has been taken away.

Unite the local communities together in love and prayer.
Help them care well for each one another.

Strengthen the will of the world community to pray and generously give help and aid.
Inspire us to show compassion and caring in practical and abundant ways.

Bless the earth.
Bring peace and harmony to the lands, to the sky and to the waters.
Let the earth be calm.

For the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ, who suffered and died for the life of the world.

Amen.

A Prayer For Southern California

A Prayer For Southern California

Heavenly Father, I turn away from my own problems and come to You for those whose homes have been darkened by disaster in recent days.

There are so many who are injured, bereaved, and homeless. Bewildered and fearful, their faith has been shaken by this tragedy. Most merciful God, wrap your arms of grace around them, until they know they are safely held in your embrace. Assure them You are with them in their suffering and sorrow. From You alone can come the spirit that will lift them above their darkness and enable them to return to a life of purpose, hope, and peace.

Please bless those who are working for their relief: risking their lives to help, to heal, and to comfort. I pray, that You will fill my heart with the same compassion, and give me eyes to see how I might, even from a distance, share in their task and be a part of the healing.

I ask this as a faithful servant of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
