Prayer for the victims.

Compassionate God,
you are ever mindful of your children and hear our prayers when we cry out to you.
We are faced with a disaster, a disaster that rattles our bones and sets our nerves on edge.
We truly have nowhere to turn but to your loving and provident arms.
Listen to our prayers for Oklahomans
who are in desperate need for assurance of your presence in their lives at this moment.
Inspired by your mercy, may we reach out through acts of kindness and compassion.
We ask this in Jesus’ name.
