Let us pray for the victims of the devastating tornadoes in Oklahoma.
We join our voices as one in prayer to you, Oh Lord, as we ask you to heal the hearts of those whose lives have been ravaged by the storms in Oklahoma. May the names of the cities and towns that have been devastated be remembered as homes, not as headlines. Once again we are reminded how temporary our material things can be, and how fragile and precious the gift of life truly is. For those who have died, may your perpetual light shine upon them and may they rest in peace.
May the hope and faith of the families, loved ones, and all the victims of this tragedy be strengthened by the outreach of the many who simply want to help heal their wounded lives.
We pray that as we walk through this valley of darkness with them, we will not be afraid, knowing that You are with us; your rod and your staff comfort us.
