For Christchurch We Pray

After the Earthquake of 22.2.11 our prayers rise to heaven for our friends and neighbours in the city of Christ's Church, New Zealand.

Father, Succoured by your Love within that most obfuscated alcove of the human heart wherein Anguish keeps guard at the bulwark of Dispair, O Lord our God, who, sensible of our plight at the hands of Nature, mercifully harken the ear of your heart unto the agony of your children in New Zealand; having suffered their second earthquake, be pleased, O God, remembering the sacrifice of your only begotten Son, to unite them in fraternal charity to rebuild both hearts and country. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with You in the power of the Holy Spirit forever. Amen.
