Prayer after the Alaskan earthquakes

God, we pray for Anchorage,

for broken buildings, chaos in homes,
the disappearance
of the Glenn Highway and an airport road,

but mostly for the fear —
the way hiding under a desk,
falling downstairs,
watching the terror of pets,
sitting in the dark

makes an aftershock in the heart,
an anticipation of quake and tremble,
a loss of confidence
in walking on the earth itself.

For all who feel such fears
and many losses,
and for those who assess damage,
and those alert to be called for rescue,

and for a great settling
within and without, we pray. amen
