Heavenly Father,

We pray to You for the people of Nepal and neighbouring countries. In the wake of this disaster, when words and understanding fail us, we trust in You.

Your word says:

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;”
Lord, in all things, we trust in Your unfailing love. Forgive us, Lord, when in anger or hurt, we fail to rest in Your love. Show those affected by the earthquake Your love and kindness. Lord, show them that Your love is steadfast and that, as they rebuild their lives, it will not cease.

Your word says:

“His mercies never come to an end;
     they are new every morning;”
As, day by day, the death toll rises and the pain continues, show Your mercy Lord.  Lord, we pray for those who are responding. Sustain them in their service and give them the strength of body, mind and spirit to continue in their work. In particular, we pray for their safety in travel as many roads are blocked or have been destroyed. Be with them in their work and rest, we pray.

Your word says:

“Great is your faithfulness.”

Father, we thank you for your provision. For the emergency response, for the love and generosity of neighbours near and far to care for those in need. May your faithfulness continue to be shown through Your church. Our brothers and sisters in Nepal are part of Your one church, lead us in how we can care for them in prayer and giving.

Your word says:

“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
    “therefore I will hope in him.”

Lord, you are all-sufficient. You are able to meet every need. For our brothers and sisters in Nepal: comfort them in their grief, care for them in their affliction, strengthen them in their service and calm their fears. Even in times of great darkness, there is hope in You.

Remind us all of Your word, Father, of Your love and Your faithfulness. Lead us to do our part in making them known in this world.

In Jesus name,

Amen
