Our blessed Lord,

We ask now that You be with those who have lost their lives, and those they leave behind. We ask that Your strength, Your love, and Your sheltering grace be with those affected right now. We praise You, O God, in all things, even the ones we don't understand.

Father, I ask you to remember the Iranian people who have suffered from this catastrophic event. Envelope them with your love and peace and bring healing to those victims who are suffering from loss and injury. Take the little children and their families into your gentle loving arms and soothe them during this time of distress. Thank You, Father, for hearing and listening, and acting upon your promises. In Jesus' Name. Amen

Creator God,
We ask comfort for those who suffer, peace for those who grieve, strength for those who work selflessly to help. May the spirit of Grace that flows there, made evident in people of different countries joining together to help their fellow man, flow throughout this world. We are all your children; may your love for us manifest in love for others. Amen

Father God, please comfort the grieving at this time with the nearness of your Presence. I ask for supernatural direction, wisdom and strength for the rescue workers, that they would be enabled to find the survivors who might be buried under the rubble. I also pray that you would protect the living from disease and further destruction, and that medical assistance, food and shelter would quickly find their way to the needy. May Your Divine Will be accomplished in all things in this area.

In Jesus Name
Amen

Barukh Atah Adonai Elohaynu melekh haolam dayan haemet (Source of blessing are You, YAH, our God, regent of the universe, Who is the ONLY TRUE JUDGE).
We pray for the families who have lost loved ones, may they be comforted. We pray that we will be able to accept that we do not always understand WHY, but that bad things do happen to good people, and that it does not always make sense. We understand that, as humans, we only see the small picture and do not comprehend the total picture. Nevertheless, we say: Allah akhbar! God is Great!

"O my God! O Thou forgiver of sins, bestower of gifts, dispeller of afflictions!

"Verily, I beseech thee to forgive the sins of such as have abandoned the physical garment and have ascended to the spiritual world.

"O my Lord! Purify them from trespasses, dispel their sorrows, and change their darkness into light. Cause them to enter the garden of happiness, cleanse them with the most pure water, and grant them to behold Thy splendors on the loftiest mount."

-'Abdu'l-Baha

I don't believe in God or any other supernatural being on whom to call to help with this tragic event. However, the continuing news of this earthquake is heartbreaking, and I wish all and everyone in Bam, as well as those elsewhere who have been affected by this tragedy, a relief to the suffering.
Know that you are in the hearts and minds of all people during this time of hardship, and that many of us would do whatever we can to help alleviate your suffering and assist in rebuilding your lives.
Yours truly,
GD
