A Prayer for Rescue, Recovery, Rebuilding

0 gracious God, we will never understand the sorrows of the world, but by your grace, we will not turn away from them. Cheer and encourage those who labor to help the injured, the homeless, the hungry, and those in despair. Bless and soften the hearts of those who would take advantage of tragedy for their own profit, that they may come to know where true joy is to be found We ask these things in your own most holy Name. Amen.
