Prayer as We Look to the Unrest In Our World

Lord our world has been shaken by earthquakes and wars,
Lord our lives have been deluged by floods and tsunamis,
Our hearts are aching and we are overwhelmed,
Lord have mercy.

God whose love never lets go, be with all who have died,
God whose compassion never ceases comfort all who have suffered loss,
God who stands firm as a rock provide security for all whose world has fallen apart,
Christ have mercy.

Lord hear our cry for mercy when we call to you for help,
Lord may we be strong and and not give up,
May we reach out in love and compassion, finding hope in your abiding presence,
Lord have mercy.
