Pray for Those Affected by the Floods, Earthquake, and Fires

God of Compassion You created a world for us to know your love and peace.
Yet amidst the beauty of creation we encounter pain and hurt, and forces beyond our control.
At times like these our hearts are shaken and ache with sorrow
at the destruction of our lives, homes and livelihoods.
Hear our prayers for those affected by the floods, earthquake, and fires
And for all those working to bring relief and fresh hope.
Amen
