A prayer for the people of Haiti..
Gen had posted this beautiful prayer on her blog and I wanted to post it here as well. It is just a way for me, or anyone else to decipher our feelings about this deplorable tragedy.
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
