A Prayer for Haiti

posted by nsymmonds

Yesterday evening at 5:00PM, a magnitude-7.0 earthquake hit Haiti, destroying much of the capital, Port Au Prince. Many buildings have been destroyed or sustained extreme structural damage, many have been injured and the body count is innumerable. Within the last 16 years, Haiti has been the bore the brunt of catastrophic natural disasters that have claimed the lives of many and destroyed the island’s structural integrity. Please join us in prayer as we lift Haiti, its inhabitants and all those affected by this disaster, up in prayer.

Heavenly Father,

It is with a heavy heart that we come to you, not necessarily knowing what we should ask for because many of us are wondering, “Why did this happen? Why has tragedy struck Haiti again and why do so many lives have to be lost again? Why has this beautiful island been struck by a catastrophic earthquake and ruined?” But as many questions as we have regarding the situation, we still humble ourselves before you to ask for your mercy to be upon Haiti and its people. Extend your hand upon the land and restore all that has been lost, destroyed and damaged to be better than it was before. As rescue teams search for casualties, give them foresight. May they be led by your wisdom, and encouraged by your strength and advised by your discernment. There are yet people who are surviving and I pray that the rescue workers would find them in time and revive them. For the lives that will be lost, we pray for immediate comfort to come to the family and friends of the deceased. For those of us who are watching this unfold from the outside, I pray that you would give us hearts of compassion so that we can give out of our surplus to fill the deficit that is widening in Haiti. May we all extend ourselves in any way possible to secure our brothers and sisters in Haiti. And may every prayer regarding this tragedy be heard and responded to in your good time.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen

    Father in Heaven, We ask that your mercy rain down upon the land of Haiti, and upon the people of Haiti, and upon the whole world. We pray for miracles in the midst of despair. Comfort those in need, and strengthen their faith. Show us great miracles and demonstrate your infinite power to ease all suffering. Plant in the hearts of men the knowledge that we are all brothers, and fill these hearts with generosity. In the name of Jesus Amen.

    An eloquent prayer written by a friend of mine in the blog cited:
    Almighty and most merciful God, we remember before you all who have suffered in the earthquake in Haiti, especially those who are homeless, the sick and injured, and those who grieve the loss of loved ones. Strengthen us in faith and inspire us in reaching out to them that we may help to heal those who are broken in body or spirit, to rebuild their land, and to turn their sorrow into joy. Grant this for the love of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    My dearest Father in Heaven,
    As we face one of the darkest moments in history, I pray that Your light shines more than ever, and that You would touch the crying and despaired hearts of the people who have nothing left and no one else to turn to, Lord. For this is where You shine the brightest, in the midst of a dark hour, and that You would want nothing more than to embrace these children, young and old, into Your arms, this we know, my Father. Your heart cries out for them, and we pray that as we answer your calls to help these people, that your glory, your love and your strength prop us up for we are nothing without you, Father. We take relief in that you have taken the dead and they are with You, Father, for the things that we cannot do, You can, and so, we ask for your blessing and your favor, your love and your support in helping the ones who are lost. Amen.

    A Prayer for Haiti: Lord it seems as if words are so inadequate to express the sadness and sorrow for this wounded nation. Let Your Light of Love shine on them and heal their broken bodies, spirits, and minds. Give them rest in Your great Love. Let them see Jesus’ saving grace in the midst of this tragedy. Lead them to a loving, healing relationship with you through Christ. Help everyone around the world to be generous for Your Name sake. May You be glorified by the acts of kindness shown by Your people toward Haiti now.

    Dear and most precious Lord of mercy lord of lords, Our most patient and benevolent God, to the smallest and the greatest of you, your people in Haiti cry out Hosana! And you have said in your word all throught the book you engourage us to look to you and to see your mighty hand protecting us. Remember Lord that you didnot promise peace, and you did not promise we would be accepted by the world. But even in any of our hard ships you say to us to pray, to feed your sheep, if we do this for the least if was done to you, lord jesus, I know disaters like haiti, chile, the far east so to speech ( the tsunami hit there) things things can make us feel angry, let us now think of no blame, allow ourselve to care but not understand, for the people of Haiti, I have prayed for you hold on to what is Good and true, though you may be week, tired and hungry, and may not be coming into USA’S arms, and allowed residence, which would be just and right for USA to do for you, behold your sorrow will be turned to joy if by the Lords word you live in faith in you die in, But my prayers are for your sons and daughters, may a seal be on each christian family and let not one child slip away from the lord’s sight. That is my prayer for you haiti, To people of chile, the world has not given you enough media attention for your plight which is a plight indeed of high magnitude, you got hit by the tsunami and earthquake, I pray for you, bless the chileans who prayed and did askfor hawaii to be spared, I pray for your people to utilize knowlede of recycling to created building supplies out of the rubble and utilize a system of bartering as a safety net finaltially, I pray that nieghbors and friends in chile with use creativity and great wisdom aslo that they will be able to assit the people without taking loans from the world bank and other such loan agencies. I pray that they instead of seeing America like a big brother who is rich, understand that we are spending more than we make.and realize, it is good here, but should we fall, the nations arround us would not build us up. these things have happened for centuries, the poor helps the poor, and so are rich, the rich help the rich and everyone else goes hungry. find nieghbors who are less frighted of not bieng # 1 economic, army what ever, go to coopration see if they will rebuild and create jobs if you r people wouold get less pay that’s why there aren’t many good jobs in america, poorer nations get some factories get paid a penny or what ever and americans with no extra money buy it on credit. who’s rich the poor man who lives on the basics and has alittle extra or the rich man who borrows from this one to pay that one to give gifts to his rich friends, that man is poor. he spend more than belongs to him. bieng rich makes you poor, isn’t it the poor who can enjoy blessing the most? Let the poor say I am rich, let chile say from the ruins, like the phoenix rose from the ashes, from the ruins we can create a new city. Lord may they create a new building material out of the rubbish and debris that they can use and also sell, a modern recycled buiding material that is better that concrete with steel.

    also USA had a president who said give us your poor, your tired and weary, why don’t they bring the haitians here, it would cost less, because they could take trips back with strong men of haiti and go back cleaning and rebuilding, and then they could go home when they are rebuilt.

    A lot of specialists say that mortgage loans help people to live their own way, just because they are able to feel free to buy necessary things. Furthermore, banks offer car loan for young and old people.

    We should be painstaking and particular in all the information we give. We should be extraordinarily prudent in giving guidance that we would not dream up of following ourselves. Most of all, we ought to avoid giving advise which we don’t tag along when it damages those who transport us at our word.
