A Prayer for Nepal

A Prayer for Nepal – Merciful and loving God, we pray for all those affected by the earthquake in Nepal. We know you to be a God whose love knows no bounds.

In the end, however, we have hope that You fill all those who suffer with Your comfort and peace, through the hands of those acting from a place of love.
