The devastating, magnitude-7.8 earthquake that hit Nepal on Saturday, April 25, 2015 has left at least 7,500 dead with many more feared to have perished. People around the world have watched with horror as aid workers continue to search for casualties, assess the damage and bring relief to those injured and made homeless by the quake. We urge those who can to support the many relief organizations who are working in Nepal. Below, we offer this prayer in support of the suffering people of Nepal.


A Prayer for Victims of the Earthquake

We mourn the death and destruction in Nepal, O Lord,
And we pray for those who died in this recent disaster.
May their souls rest in peace.
May their families be comforted.

We pray for the living survivors.
Be with them, Lord, in this traumatic time.
May they experience Your healing,
In their spirits as well as their bodies.

We pray for the communities affected.
May they come together in solidarity
To rebuild and to affirm new life
Amid the ancient stones.
