Shortly after the earthquake my seminary circulated this prayer. Over 6 months later, it is still urgent.
our Father, Creator of Heaven and Earth,
You are our refuge and strength,
an ever present help in trouble.
Though the Earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging
we will not fear
for you have entered into and overcome human suffering
in the suffering of your Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ.
We join in the prayers of your people all over the World,
interceding in agreement,
pleading for your merciful intervention
for the sake of your people in Haiti.
We believe there is a river
whose streams make glad the City of God,
and we pray this river of mercy
to flow through the streets of Port Au Prince
In your mercy,
by your Spirit
through your people
and in the name of your son Jesus, would you
bless the poor,
comfort the mourners,
rescue the orphans,
protect the widows,
feed the hungry,
clothe the naked,
heal the sick,
raise the dead,
renew the hope,
repair the ruins,
restore the land,
and cause Salvation to spring up
through the brokenness of the ground
as a witness to your compassionate Glory.
Please hear our prayers.
Make us into your mercy
and show yourself mighty to save.
We agree in these prayers
in the Name of Jesus Christ.
