Prayer and I aren’t always on speaking terms, especially lately, but as the Haiti earthquake images and death tolls slowly sink into my brain, I feel that tug that is the human instinct to pray.

So here it is.  My prayer is for solid ground. 

May the earth that crumbled beneath feet and homes and schools once again become solid ground for walking and loving and learning.

May worried families and friends discover their loved ones safely spared waiting for them on solid ground.

May those who are trapped amid the rubble feel the solid power of love and healing that the world is sending their way.

May we who are so far away from the devastation find a way to share some of the solid ground of our full lives with those who have lost so much.

May the solid ground of this simple prayer become a foundation on which Haiti can rebuild.
