Prayer for those suffering in Japan

Merciful God, in your hands are the caverns of the earth and the heights of the hills: our times also are in your hands.
Hear our prayers for those suffering in the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan; soothe those in distress;  watch over those trapped and hoping for  rescue; comfort the bereaved; strengthen those who labor to help others, lift up those who cannot help themselves; and in every danger be their very present help by the power of your Holy Spirit; we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.  -The Rev. Jennifer Phillips

This prayer is from St. Pete's Rock.  You will find several others at that site. The artwork is a child's depiction of the tsunami that ravaged Sri Lanka several years ago.
