For victims of floods, earthquakes and tsunamis in the Pacific

O God, our hearts ache eastward for lives lost suddenly For families swallowed by water and earth For home and hearth gone and memories forever changed in an instant.

O God, our eyes look to you For healing, For comfort For hope, For direction.

O God, our arms reach out to do all that we can, in whatever ways that we can, for as long as is needed for neighbors and friends in the Pacific.

Lord in Your mercy, hear our prayer.
