Prayers for Honduras

I just heard of the 7+ earthquake that struck Honduras at 3.00 a.m. Many children have died. Pray folks.
    Most merciful God, in the midst of natural disaster
    we look to you in hope and trust,
    acknowledging that there is much in life
    beyond our present understanding.

    Accept our compassion for the suffering in Honduras
    bless those who are working for their relief
    and show us what we can do to share in their task,
    as servants of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
