hold those who are hurting
comfort those who are in mourning
calm those who are panicking
surround with safety those who are traumatised
shelter those who are homeless
be a beacon of wisdom and guidance
for those directing rescue operations.
As you entered into the blood, sweat and tears of life
Help us to enter into lament, love and solidarity
with our sisters and brothers in Indonesia
standing together with those you love
in their time of deepest need.
May they know they are not alone.
In Jesus name, Amen.
