A Prayer for the People of Haiti


Out of the depths we cry to You, O God.

We cry to You for our Haitian sisters and brothers.


We thank You for upholding them in their suffering.


Give them continuing strength and comfort.


Give us love and courage to stand with them and work with them as they struggle for justice and freedom.


Keep us committed to the truth and empower us with Your Spirit of love;

- a love that always sees possibilities for peace founded on justice;

- a love that seeks justice without vengeance and retaliation;

- a love that reaches out to enemies, as Jesus taught us.

O Lespri Sen desaan sou nou; nou gen youn misyon pou Ayiti.

(O Holy Spirit descend on us; we have a mission for Haiti.)

Amen.
