A Prayer for the Victims of the Asian Tsunami
O God of grace, we come before you with hurting hearts to plead for those who are the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Asia. We grieve for those who have lost their lives. May angels surround them and welcome them in peace. We grieve for those who have lost their loved ones and feel as if the ground has disappeared not only from under their feet, but from their innermost hearts. Surround them with your love and tenderness that their pain may not lead to despair. Above all good God, when nothing but the question "Why?" screams through our souls, descend with your loving presence and unfaltering assurance that even in our darkest moments, you will not forsake us. Even our pain and questioning is held in the eternity of your embrace. In the time of fear remind us that, in You, nothing is ever lost. We ask this for the sake of your love. Amen.
