For the Victims of Earthquakes in Italy and Myanmar

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 earthquakes in Italy and Myanmar. Grant peace to them that perished, and comfort to them that mourn them. Defend the inhabitants of Italy and Myanmar 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.
