God of all mercy, we lift our voices in sorrow and lament at the news that over 1000 have died in the earthquake in Morocco. Protect and save those who are still missing, injured, or in any way at risk. Comfort the family members of those who died. Speed the provision of relief and recovery resources from all over the world. Keep us ever mindful of all the suffering around us, that we might never let an hour pass without praying for your grace and remembering that we are its mediators. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
