Give Rest

As I am about to lie down in my comfortable, warm and safe bed, my spirit is heavy for those in Haiti. I managed to get in front of a TV tonight and my heart hurts for what I saw. What and how do we pray? How do I help? Safe and warm, I will sleep, next to my husband and knowing my family is also home and tucked in their beds. It is crazy how little we realize such simple knowledge can be so comforting.

Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or weep this night, and give your angels charge over those who sleep. Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous; and all for your love's sake. Amen. [[The Divine Hours]]

  1. It's hard to fathom the destruction and devastation that these people are experiencing. May we all do our part to help in a small way. Check out www.redcross.com or www.mercycorps.com to see of ways to help. Lord place your comforting hand on the lives of these people.
