Prayer for Earthquake in Turkey & Syria
Almighty God, we pray for the people of Turkey and Syria, for the victims, the injured, and all those affected by the devastating earthquake.
We pray for first-responders, and all those working tirelessly to rescue survivors from beneath the rubble. May God’s peace sustain their efforts.
We pray that the God of Life will comfort the grieving families and friends, and give them the strength and courage they need during this very difficult time. May God’s love and compassion comfort them.
Eternal rest grant unto the dead, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
