Let us pray for the people of Japan


Join me in praying these intercessions for the people of Japan.  (H/T to Teresa Berger at PrayTellBlog)
That all the lives that have been lost may find their eternal rest in You...

That those grieving the loss of loved ones, especially their children, and the loss of entire families and communities, may find glimpses of hope and life...

That those injured and those fighting for their lives may find solace, hope, and healing...

That a nuclear catastrophe may be averted...

That those searching for loved ones may be sustained in their turmoil and struggle...

That those waiting for water, food, and the basic necessities of life may be able to strengthen each other and share meager resources...

That those who are especially vulnerable – the children, the elderly, the women waiting to give birth, the sick – may find others to care for them...

For all aid workers, that they may discover within themselves deep reservoirs of strength, generosity, and compassion...

For the rising up of human beings who know how to heal, to restore, to rebuild, and to birth anew life and hope...

For ourselves, that our lives may be strengthened in their witness to God’s holy and ever-healing presence ...

Let us pray to the Lord...
