A Prayer for Japan

from Mennonite Central Committee.  Let us continue to hold the people of Japan in our prayers.

God of healing and mercy, we come before you with our hearts filled with grief as we see the devastation in Japan.

We pray that your presence would be felt by those who are grieving, who are injured, who have lost their homes and livelihoods.

We pray for wisdom and safety for those who are responding to the people in need.

We pray for wisdom and safety for those who continue to deal with the many challenges left by the earthquake and tsunami, particularly those struggling to contain damaged nuclear reactors.

We pray for the church in Japan, that it can be a light in the darkness, a witness to your compassion and care for all who suffer.

God, you are our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble. For this we give you thanks and ask that you hear our prayers for the people of Japan.

Amen
