Prayer for the Albanian Earthquake

God who shakes our hearts
to be compassionate,
tenderly care for your children
in Durres, Lezhe, Kurbin,
Thumane and Tirana.

Comfort those who mourn
family and friends,
Grant healing hands
to those who care for so many injured,
keen eyes and strength
for those who are still searching
among debris to save more.

We pray for Bosnia and Herzegovina
in their quakes today,
and give thanks for the reflex
of immediate kindness
from Italy and Greece.

And we also pray
for the tomorrows of rebuilding,
and the remembering
of all the losses
which cannot be restored
but can be held in love,
in your peace, in your stillness.
Amen
