Prayer for the earthquake in Oaxaca, Mexico

For those who grieve the deaths of six people,
and all those whose homes are broken
and lives changed, we pray.

For those who felt the earth move
more than a hundred miles away
and who fear tsunami’s power, we pray.

For those who grieve the deaths
of four hundred-seventeen from Covid-19
in Oaxaca alone, and those who wait
for more who are ill, we pray.

Companion to us
with shovel and with ventilator,

we are a world of people shaken
in many different ways,
help us to pray for one another. amen.
