We pray for the people of Japan and the Pacific Rim
following the earthquake and tsunami

The waves of death rose about me;
the torrents of destruction assailed me;
the snares of the grave surrounded me;
the traps of death confronted me.
The earth reeled and rocked;
The mountains were shaken to their base.
The bed of the ocean was revealed;
The foundations of the world were laid bare.
From on high he reached me and seized me;
He drew me forth from the mighty waters.
From Psalm 18
Lord God,
Creator of the earth, sea, and sky,
be present to the people of Japan
in their time of need.
Receive those who have died into your loving embrace,
and grant their families comfort and peace.
May those who have lost homes and livelihood feel your love
through the help of friends and strangers.
Give them courage and hope
as they rebuild their communities.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
