MIA Prayer Intention for the Coming Week: Nepal Earthquake Tragedy
We pray for the people of Nepal, for those residents and travellers who lost their lives as a result of the earthquake on 26 April.We remember their relatives and friends who are forever changed by the impact of deep grief and sudden loss.
We pray for healing for those who have been injured and for the safety of the missing. We are mindful of all those who have lost their homes and their livelihoods. May they be given the gifts of hope and courage to start over.
Conscious that Nepal is one of the world's poorest countries, ranked 145th on the Human Development Index, we give thanks for the generosity of countries giving aid and the efforts of relief workers to assist those persons and communities affected by this disaster.
