For the Victims of the Earthquake in Nepal

O Lord of Hosts, who lookest on the earth, and it trembleth; who touchest the hills, and they smoke: in thy great mercy, soothe the suffering of thy servants devastated by the earthquake in Nepal. Grant peace to them that perished, and comfort to them that mourn them. Defend them from the perils of instability as they rebuild their lives, and grant them like Job to be restored to a full faith in thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Written in response to the devastation wrought by Typhoon Haiyan (known as Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines), which struck the Philippines on November 8th, 2013. First used on Sunday, November 10th, 2014.
