A Prayer following the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria

Heavenly Father,
we cry out to you for the peoples of Turkey and Syria
following the devastating earthquakes.
We pray for those killed, trapped, or injured;
for the rescue teams and emergency services;
and all now facing loss of loved ones, homes, or livelihoods.
Be with them in their agony;
give wisdom to those in authority;
and guide the nations of the world in their response.
In the darkness of this tragedy,
grant to them the light and comfort of your love;
in Jesus’ Name.
