A Prayer for Flight QZ8501
Lord of the air and sea,
Of the dust of the land,
You call us into being,
And call us home to rest.
As we watch those in shock and grief,
Knowing that their loved ones have been lost,
Our hearts break for them,
and we know that you
weep with them as your Son
wept at the grave of his beloved Lazarus.
Help us to trust that while an aircraft fell,
You caught the souls of each person on that flight,
And you now cherish them forever.
By your Spirit, bring to those that mourn, comfort.
Breathe your peace upon them
and in time, bring your healing to
wounded and broken hearts.
This we ask in the name of your Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
