I leave today for a week away, but thought you would like to have this prayer sent to me by a friend just yesterday:
PRAYER FOR JAPAN
Creator of atoms, earth, fire, water, and air,
We do not understand all that surrounds us,
We are only a part and a moment,
You are the All in All.
Surround, protect, and give ground
To our sisters and brothers in Japan.
They feel so afraid and so abandoned.
Yet we know You abandon nothing
That you have created,
Nor will you abandon them.
Love us all into the Larger Life
That Jesus revealed while being crucified.
With him and for them,
We pray in hope.
