There are times during tragedies and disasters we are at a loss for words. Even so, we know praying is THE thing to do.  If you are in this space, here is a prayer you can pray with your children for the citizens of Oklahoma City.
You never slumber. Thank you that you brought hope and life out of the rubble during the night. Thank you for the courage and compassion of the first responders, rescuers, volunteers, and teachers. We pray for those who have family members still missing. We know you are in the business of finding the lost. We ask for comfort those who have lost loved ones.  You are the Great comforter, full of compassion, abounding in love. You are our provider and protector. We pray for those who have been displaced and lost their homes. Be with them.Only you could reduce the death toll. You are the miracle worker, our friend, our daddy, king, and savior.
Oklahoma …God is for you. God is with you. You are not alone.
Faith, hope, and love,
Lori  & Becky
And the 1 Corinthians 13 Parenting Team
My help comes from the LORD the maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121:2
