INDONESIA EARTHQUAKE AND TSUNAMI
A prayer from USPG:
Loving God, we pray for the people of Sulawesi, Indonesia in the aftermath of earthquake and tsunami.
Lord, at times such as this, when we realise that the ground beneath our feet is not as solid as we imagined and that the waves of the ocean can be unpredictable and wild, we plead for your mercy.
As the things that we have built crumble around us, we know too well how small we truly are on this ever-changing, ever-moving, fragile planet we call home. Yet you have promised never to forget us. Do not forget us now.
(Adapted from a prayer by Diana Macalintal)
