Prayer for Maharashtra

God, for searchers
in the collapsed apartment building,
both human and canine,
we pray persistence and hope,
for those trapped and conscious –
calm and ingenuity,
for those unconscious –
a ring of prayers
from all around the world,
for those who grieve –
sweet memories, some answers,
but mostly tenderness,
for those whose homes are gone –
kindness for needs,
care for emotional damage,
plans for tomorrow.

God, for whom no place
is too tight or airless or abandoned,
wait in the rubble for anyone
who needs your love. amen.
