  • first by reflection, which is noblest;
  • second by imitation, which is easiest; and
  • third by experience, which is bitterest.”

A special prayer for the people of Japan

following the earthquake and tsunami centred on Sendai that occurred on Friday 11 March 2011.

Prayer HandsO loving Creator,
bring healing and hope to our struggling brothers and sisters on earth.
We pray for all in Japan who grieve, suffer pain,
or whose homes have been destroyed by the earthquake and tsunami.
We remember those who have died and pray for those who mourn their deaths.
May your compassion, O God, calm troubled hearts and shelter anxious souls.
We dare to hope that through the generosity of the privileged,
the destitute might find warmth and life again,
and those who despair might glimpse hope.
We make our prayer through our Saviour Christ
who defeated death and reigns with you in glory.
Amen.
