Out of the depths we cry to You, O God.
We cry to You for our Haitian sisters and brothers.
We thank You for upholding them in their suffering.
Give them continuing strength and comfort.
Give us love and courage to stand with them and work with them
as they struggle for justice and freedom.
Keep us committed to the truth and empower us with Your Spirit of love:
A love that always sees possibilities for peace founded on justice;
A love that seeks justice without vengeance and retaliation;
A love that reaches out to enemies, as Jesus taught us.
We trust in Your continuing mercy as we bring to You our own desire to be in active solidarity with our Haitian brothers and sisters.
O Holy Spirit descend on us: we have a mission for Haiti.
