Prayer, Plain and Simple

Prayer, Plain and Simple

Praying for Indonesian Earthquake Victims

Wednesday’s 7.6-magnitude earthquake, which originated in the sea off Sumatra island, has severely damaged the city of Padang, Indonesia. At least 376 people are known dead and thousands more are missing or trapped beneath ruined buildings. Let’s offer a collective prayer for these victims and their families.

“God, the violence of nature shocks us. We don’t understand why these things happen, but in the midst of our confusion we turn toward you, not away from you. We ask for your mercy to be be with the victims of the earthquake in Indionesia. Comfort those who have lost family. Protect and preserve those still in danger. Give rescue workers courage and wisdom and direction to stem the suffering. God, have mercy! Heal and save. We need your hand to work in this case, now. In Jesus…”
