Prayer for Afghanistan after the Earthquake

God of so many names,
All-Knowing, All-Compassionate,
we are all Elijahs,
knowing that you are never in the earthquake,
storm or fire or flood or drought.

Your sacred silence of love,
sits with all of those who grieve
the loss of family and friends
in Khost province,
you are with those who give shelter,
and those who repair damage,
offer food and water
to everyone displaced.

We pray, in all holy Names,
for your guidance for those who seek
the many still trapped, waiting for rescue
desperate for water and hope.

We pray, al-Qawi, Strong One,
that you give strength to Afghan helpers,
especially Afghan Red Crescent,
access to international ones,
and generosity to all the world
to reach out in love. Amen
