Prayer for Nepalis facing winter after the earthquake

AFP/Prakash Mathema
Lord, today we pray for the people of Nepal. Tens of thousands of them died or were injured in April of last year, and they are still rebuilding their communities and lives. Now their first post-earthquake winter has come, and so many people do not have adequate shelter or warmth. Please give them strength. Give them peace and hope. And please send them the supplies they need to fortify their shelters. Provide warm clothing to fight the cold, supplies to provide heat, and more. Please bless the efforts of Catholic Relief Services, Samaritan’s Purse and Save the Children as they step forward to meet these needs. May your children among these relief workers bring special encouragement to those they encounter as they meet practical needs. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
