A Prayer For The People Of Syria and Turkey

More than 12,000 people have died, and countless others have been injured on as a result of one of the strongest earthquakes to hit the regions of Turkey and Syria.

Church leaders of the world reacted with dismay and call for prayer following the devastating earthquake. A deeply saddened Pope Francis sent “heartfelt condolences to those who mourn their loss.” He prayed “that the emergency personnel would be sustained in their care of the injured and in the ongoing relief efforts by the divine gifts of fortitude and perseverance.” The Pope also affirmed “his spiritual solidarity” with the “long-suffering Syrian people.”

In the midst of the death and trauma caused by this terrible tragedy, may we too, join in prayer and solidarity:

Almighty God, we pray for the people of Turkey and Syria, for the victims, the injured, and all those affected by the devastating earthquake.

We pray for first-responders, and all those working tirelessly to rescue survivors from beneath the rubble. May God’s peace sustain their efforts.

We pray that the God of Life will comfort the grieving families and friends, and give them the strength and courage they need during this very difficult time.

May God’s love and compassion comfort them.

Through the intercession of Mary, the Mother of God, let us pray together:

Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus.

Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Eternal rest grant unto the dead, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
