God with us in light and darkest days – We pray for all impacted by earthquakes, floods or other disasters: survivors, displaced people, loved ones, lost ones.
Where there’s life, let there be rescue. Where there’s need, let there be care. Where there’s loss, let there be consolation.
We pray for all on the ground, responding with urgency: emergency workers, medics, people donating food and blood.
Where there’s fear, let there be hope. Where there’s confusion, let there be clarity. Where there’s weariness, let there be rest.
As we pray for people directly affected, we pray also for ourselves: aware, far -off, watching on.
Where there’s compassion, let there be action. Where there’s love, let there be solidarity. Where there’s concern, let there be generosity.
God with us in light and darkest days – hear our prayer.
