Lord God, we lay before you our concerns over those missing in Iran: up to 12 climbers and seven maritime crew members. With all of these people going missing on Christmas Day due to storms and wind, we are greatly concerned about their safety. We know that you look out from your dwelling place on all the inhabitants of the earth (Psalm 33:14). You see these missing men and women. We pray that survivors will be rescued as quickly as possible. Sustain them until help arrives. We pray for those whose souls have already passed from this earth to also be found, in order to bring closure for their loved ones. We appeal for your protection over rescuers, as they risk their own safety in the search for others. Finally, Lord, we request comfort for those who grieve. We entreat you for mercy in this situation. Amen.
