I woke up this morning with a thud. My heart aches at the disasters in the world. The earthquake in China, the Cyclone in Myanmar, and the violence happening all across Africa and The Middle East.
Who fashioned life from Word. Grant us strength to endure the violence in our midst. Grant us compassion to open our hearts to the other so that we may become instruments of your kingdom. Be with those that suffer and provide for their physical needs. Be with those that do not suffer so that we may be with those that do.
In your mercy hear this prayer.
