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.
A Prayer following the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria
