Prayer from Christian Aid
This is an awe inspiring planet, wonderfully but fearfully made. In Typhoon Haiyan we see again the vulnerability of humanity to the full force of nature’s energy.
We pray for all those affected: Those who have lost loved ones, Those who have had to witness mass burials, Those who make up the faceless millions affected, Those who need shelter, water, food, sanitation and medicine.
We pray for the emergency response teams: For safety and strength as they assess the damage, For communication lines to be restored, For a quick and effective response to their findings, For the resources required to be made available.
We pray for the long term recovery and resilience work: That the growing intensity of typhoons would not be ignored, That the erratic nature of recent monsoon rains would be noted, That this vulnerable nation would not carry the challenge of climate change alone, That the international community would respond with generosity and with justice.
