God, our hearts ache from the devastation in Oklahoma and we stand in
awe of the utter power of creation. Bring comfort to those who grieve
and rest to those who aid others. Help us find the lost and heal the
wounded, and may you shelter all who have died gently in your loving
Guide our nation to meet the challenges to come with
generosity and deep compassion as we rebuild what has been destroyed.
Let our prayers be made not only with our hearts, but with our hands and
feet as we offer all we can to those who are in need.
all remember that we do not face this desolation alone, but stand in the
hope, peace, and renewal of your beloved Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ,
who reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, now and forever, amen.
