You do not shy away from pain and difficulty.
When you were admonished to be silent, you spoke the truth.
You told people about God’s grace and power.
You warned and promised that the day of God’s justice was at hand.
You forgave sins and invited people to discover the joy of new life in God’s way.
You sent your Spirit to be with your followers always,
and commissioned your followers with power to continue your work in the world.
We pray for our brothers and sisters in Haiti.
We pray for their protection and safety.
We pray for their work, their teaching, their life together.
May your witness continue and be strengthened among them
May you guard their health,
and use their work to guard the health of those around them.
May clean waters fall from the sky and rise from the ground.
May storms be turned away, and winds quieted.
May crops flourish and harvest abound.
May hearts repent and the opportunity for peace be realized.
May your love be known, in all its sustaining power.
