Prayer of Pope Benedict XVI for Haiti


God of all creation, as we weep with our family in Haiti, console us. In this time of crisis, open our eyes to look beyond the disaster to see Christ in our brothers and sisters in Haiti, as Christ sees us. Be with us as we stand in solidarity with those living and working in Haiti. Be with us in our mourning and guide our efforts to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, comfort the grieving and stand for justice. With your mercy, sustain us at this time as we continue to work for peace and justice. Amen.

For the Haitian people, that help comes to them quickly and comfort comes to those who hurt. Lord, hear our prayer.

For the lost or buried, that they are found and reunited with their loved ones. Lord, hear our prayer.

For the relief workers, that they have the tools they need, the courage and the strength to respond fully. Lord, hear our prayer.

For the families in Haiti and in the United States who are waiting to hear from loved one, that good news comes to them. Lord, hear our prayer.

For those who have perished, may their souls rest with you, oh Lord, where they will find eternal love. Amen.

I have just found this blog by clicking the 'next blog' on the dashboard of my own blog, 'LAST WELSH MARTYR'. I am very interested in all things Franciscan so I am pleased to have found this blog. It is a good blog and I have looked for your followers but couldn't find it. I would become a follower if I could. Anyway, keep up the good work and God bless you.
