A prayer for New Zealand

I was asked today to write a prayer for use in the Diocese for those caught up in the earthquake in New Zealand:

Heavenly Father,
whose love and care embraces all people
as our lives weave through the opportunities and dangers of this dynamic world.
Tighten your embrace we pray on those who are victims
of the powerful forces of this planet:
be comforter for those who weep,
an encourager for those who search,
and a strength to those who support the lost and bewildered;
and to all the people of New Zealand at this time,
give the assurance of your presence amid the devastation and loss,
for the sake of Jesus our Lord, Amen
