Prayer and Petition for Japan

God of Creation,

Please sustain our sisters and brothers that are suffering around the world as a result of conflict and natural disaster. Console our Japanese sisters and brothers who are living with the results of a devastating earthquake followed by a tsunami on March 11th. Comfort those separated from their families and loved ones.

Bless the relief workers as they work with the survivors of this natural disaster. Protect those responding to the nuclear power plants and enable them to prevent further harm. Lord, help us to respond to the needs of our brothers and sisters in the coming days. Foster in us a greater sense of solidarity, so that we assist as needed, beyond our excess. We ask this through your son Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.

All: Amen.
