Prayer about investigation of recent airplane crashes and the 737 MAX

Lord, we pray for the investigation of what caused the recent crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 409, which may be related to the crash of Lion Air Flight 610. We pray for success for the investigators in France who will begin analyzing the crashed Ethiopian Airlines jet’s black boxes on Friday. With Ethiopia overseeing the investigation, with the help of France and the United States (the only two nations with the experience gained from being present at almost every crash involving a Boeing or Airbus), we pray that everyone involved can be unbiased, diligent, and keenly observant. With the grounding of Boeing Co’s 737 MAX 8 and 9 planes around the world, we know this is a big deal. Everyone wants answers in order to prevent future accidents. Please grant wisdom and insight. And, Lord, we pray for the airlines scrambling to reschedule and reassign flights without the use of these grounded planes. Help them to be efficient and gracious, and may inconvenienced passengers also extend grace. We are hopeful that this process will go as well as possible and ask for your blessing and guidance. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
