A prayer for the people of haiti..

Gen had posted this beautiful prayer on her blog and I just wanted to post it here as well and ask all who are reading this to take a minute to disconnect yourself from all of our materialistic surroundings and say this prayer with me. It matters not what your beliefs are or whether you haven't prayed in years or go to church on a frequent basis the haitian people are suffering the unimaginable who who knows what the loss of life is like. To think of children sleeping next to the bodies of their parents or mothers and fathers cradling the lifeless bodies of their babies is something that I cant even begin to grasp!! So take this second, open your hearts and say this with me..

O Lord, hear us

Our voices join the mournful songs and prayers

rising above the ruins of the Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince

O Lord, we believe
That you hear the cries of the trapped and the injured

You cradle the dead and the dying

You feel the pain of the grief-stricken and the searching

O Lord, we ask you
To pour comfort on your children who sorrow and sigh

Calm all panic and despair

Strengthen the weary hands of rescuers and medical workers

O Lord, forgive us
and hasten our response to the poverty and greed

that render so many helpless in the face of disaster

In Jesus' name

Thank you !!!!!!!!
