We offer special prayers for the people of Lebanon as they deal with the aftermath of the explosion

We pray for the people of Lebanon

Most merciful God
in the midst of disaster
we look to you in hope and trust,
acknowledging that there is much in life beyond our present understanding.
Accept our compassion for the suffering; bless those who are working for their relief;
and show us what we can do
to share in their task,
through Jesus Christ our Lord
