A Prayer for the People of Japan
Holy God, by the power of your Spirit,
be present in this time of trouble.
Grant peace to fearful minds.
Pour out your grace into grief-filled hearts.
Comfort those who mourn and reveal your presence
to those whose lives are literally awash.
Be with those in need
and with those who even now are arriving to help.
We know, O God, that you have
the power to bring good even from this.
The earth quakes and groans
with eager longing for redemption
as we ourselves await
the fullness of your mercy and your grace.
In the strong name of Christ we pray. Amen.
