O God, you set the earth on its foundation and command all the elements, hear our cry in this time of need. Show us your mercy in this time of trouble. May we find in this disaster an occasion to serve you by generously reaching out to those who have lost their homes, the hungry, the broken and all in any need. May those who have suffered in this disaster find relief and may those who have died be brought into your arms of grace.
We ask this through our Lord, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever.
