Prayer for New Orleans

God who does not speak the language
of whirlwind, earthquake or fire,
and who names “laughter”
a child born when none was forecast,
never the destruction of children,
call with your still small voice of hope
and send the compassion of friend and stranger
from the midst but not in the making
of hurricane
to this poor Job New Orleans
that all of us, near and far away,
may sing for them like
aching hearts and morning stars. Amen
