The Bahamas Prayer
Sep 3, 2019
Take a moment and please pray:
This morning when we woke up, we had a roof over our heads, plenty of food in our fridge, hot water for a shower…the sun was shining…a beautiful day…
For many in the Bahamas they woke to find their Island Paradise transformed into a nightmare come true. We extend to them our prayers…and any other help we may provide them:
Let Our Cries Come Unto You
Most merciful and compassionate God, Giver of Life and Love, hear our prayers and let our cries come unto you. We weep with your people We hear the cries of children and laments of bereaved families We feel the desperation of those searching for loved ones We behold the silence of vanished villages. We see the devastation. We are overwhelmed by the enormity of it all. Our hearts are hushed, our minds are numb. Let not our hands be stopped, our voices dumb. God of the universe, Open our hearts to feel your compassion Galvanize in us the act of continued giving Bond us to our sisters and brothers in need Comfort and heal the injured, the bereaved, the lost Strengthen the aid workers and medical personnel Bolster the resolve of governments and those with power to help Open through this tragedy pathways to partnerships and peace In Your Name of mercy and healing and compassion we pray.
