Offered by The Reverend Donavan G. Cain
Blessed Lord, Father of Creation, healer of the sick and peace-giver to those who suffer, look with compassion and love upon our brothers and sisters in the country of Haiti. Reach down, Lord God, and lift up the Haitian lands and peoples. Give Haiti the strength and promise to become an emerging cornerstone of the Kingdom of God, for your Church and for the world.
We ask especially that you give your servants at the Hôpital Sacré Coeur the faith and skill to be nothing less than the hands and the heart of your Son, Jesus Christ, for every person they touch and for every family they reach out to help and restore. We also ask that you breathe your Holy Spirit on the work of the CRUDEM Foundation, so that its love and mission for Haiti can spread throughout the world, giving opportunities for those who love you to reach out and support its much needed work.
Father, in you all hope is restored and all things are possible. Build up your Church, heal those who suffer, and spread your good news, in the country of Haiti and in the world. All this we ask in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ.
The Rev’d Donavan G. Cain, Rector of All Saints Episcopal Church, located in Jacksonville, Florida
