For those affected by Typhoon Haiyan
Merciful and loving God,
Father of all,
We pray for our sisters and brothers in the Philippines,
Especially for those who mourn.
We ask that, through the power of your love,
Those who despair may be comforted.
Grant hope to the many who lack food and shelter
And give courage to those
Who bring help to people in need.
Lord, bringer of life,
As we remember those who battle to rebuild,
May we offer our hearts and hands to your work,
Through our actions, our prayers and our love.
