Moore, Oklahoma: Let us pray...



O God, our Creator,
nature's power can be as terrible as it beautiful,
as powerful as it serene,
as devastating as it is life-giving...

In the mystery of all this
we grieve the loss of life,
the loss of children, the loss of homes
and the loss of the familiar
that roots your people in their trust in you
and in the world around them...

We pray for those who have died
and for those who mourn;
we pray for those now homeless;
and we pray for the safety of all,
especially for first responders...

We pray that in time you'll heal your people
in body and soul,
refresh and restore their faith
and give them strength to build again
their city and their homes
where they might dwell in peace,
with hope in you...

Amen.
