Father of mercy,
we pray for the people of Turkey and Syria
following the recent earthquakes.
Grant rest to those have died,
and comfort to those who grieve.

We hold in our hearts, too, those who are injured,
and those who have lost loved ones, livelihoods, and homes.

Sustain and guide all responding to this disaster.
Grant those affected courage and resilience
as they rebuild their lives and communities.

Inspire us to unite in solidarity with the suffering,
and to act swiftly and generously,
so that help may reach all who need it.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
