“Almighty God, we recognize how small we are, and how powerless we are in the face of nature when its full power is unleashed.  Our hearts are heavy with sorrow for their losses of life, shelter, employment, and hope. Quiet our minds and voices so that we may be able to hear, speak and do your will, but only after we have lifted these victims up in prayer. Therefore, open our hearts in prayer and our hands in generosity, so that our words may bring comfort and our gifts bring aid. Be with us now and with all humanity as we strive to mend what has been injured and rebuild what has been destroyed. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.”
