Prayer, Plain and Simple

A Prayer for the Welfare of Haiti

It has been one week since the 7.0-magnitude earthquake hit Haiti. The death toll is ever increasing and the destruction has yet to be rebuilt, but despite these perilous conditions there is still an outpouring of compassion from people of all stripes. That outpouring includes ’round the clock prayer from people of many faiths. In the next few days I hope to share prayers that have emerged from other faith traditions for the people of Haiti. To that end, I am glad to have the opportunity to share a prayer for the welfare of Haiti by Associate Rabbi Steven Exler of the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale. I encourage all that would to welcome this prayer and see it as a spiritual effort toward the restoration of the island of Haiti and it’s people.

May God who blessed our patriarchs Avraham, Yitzhak, and Yaakov, and our matriarchs Sarah, Rivkah, Rachel, and Leah
Bless and heal all those wounded in the earthquake in Haiti.
Merciful One, whose strength and might fills the earth,
Save and rescue those who are trapped,
Return those who are missing, and
Strengthen and comfort the families of those who have died.
May the One who heals the sick and supports the fallen
Strengthen the hands of Haiti’s leaders and her doctors,
And the hands of all those engaged in volunteering and rescuing at this time,
And put in their hearts wisdom, understanding, and knowledge.
So may it be your will, and let us say: Amen. 
 -By Steven Exler and Mishael Zion
