Prayer for the Victims of the Tornado in Moore, Oklahoma

Heartbroken by the news from Moore, Oklahoma. Children dead. Homes destroyed. The pictures are devastating. For those of us not near enough to do anything to directly aid the recovery efforts, all we can do is pray.

Here is a prayer adapted from one prepared for another natural disaster:

Almighty God,
We know that your thoughts are not our thoughts,
and your ways are not our ways.
Keep all who have been afflicted by this tornado from despair.
Sustain and comfort them.
Direct ongoing efforts to attend the injured,
console the bereaved,
and protect the helpless.
Deliver any who are still in danger.
Bring hope and healing that we may find relief and restoration.
We make our prayer through Jesus Christ, your Son and our Lord,
Amen.
