Prayers for victims of Haitian Earthquake

Catholic Relief Services personnel in Haiti are struggling to ensure that it’s 300 staff members are safe and accounted for.  They are also beginning the work of bringing relief supplies to the millions affected by this week's earthquake.
You may like to join in the following Reflection and Prayers which come from CRS via the Justice Desk of the Sisters of St Joseph of Orange, California.

PRAYER
God of all creation, as we weep with our family in Haiti, console us.
In this time of crisis, open our eyes to look beyond the disaster
to see Christ in our brothers and sisters in Haiti, as Christ sees us.
Be with us as we stand in solidarity with those living and working in Haiti.
Be with us in our mourning and guide our efforts to feed the hungry,
shelter the homeless, comfort the grieving and stand for justice.
With your mercy, sustain us at this time as we continue to work for peace and justice.
Amen.
 
FOR OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN HAITI AFFECTED BY THE EARTHQUAKE
Lord, hear our prayer.
For the Haitian people, that help comes to them quickly and comfort comes to those who hurt.
Lord, hear our prayer.
For the lost or buried, that they are found and reunited with their loved ones.
Lord, hear our prayer.
For the relief workers, that they have the tools they need,
the courage and the strength to respond fully.
Lord, hear our prayers.
For the families in Haiti and around the world who are waiting to hear from loved ones, that good news comes to them.
Lord, hear our prayers.
For those who have perished, may their souls rest with you, oh Lord, where they will find eternal love.
Amen.
