A Special Prayer for the Victims of Natural Disasters
Lord Jesus, Who went about doing good and healing all, we ask You to bless all people who are injured, sick or homeless due to natural disasters. O Jesus, You suffered and died for us; You understand suffering. Give them strength in body, courage in spirit, and patience in pain. Calm their fears; increase their trust. And bless all who hasten to their aid. Amen.
