I have been praying for the people of Haiti since the news of this horrific disaster hit. It doesn't feel like enough, the relief effort seems to take so long, people are dying and injured, waiting for help that is slow to arrive. As the poorest nation in the western hemisphere it's own infrastructure cannot handle what needs to be done.
I have been to Haiti and the poverty and need are so overwhelming that it breaks my heart. My mind now can scarcely wrap itself around the devastation I see on the news, they statred out with so little and now this. I shall continue to pray for there seems little else to do, aside from monetary donations and waiting for help to find it's way through the rubble.
I shall look closely at the faces of this tragedy for they are my brothers and sisters, and they are in need of our prayers.
May God send his heavenly Angels to comfort and console His people in Haiti. May He enable His earthly angels to arrive quickly and may He give them the strength, wisdom and compassion to make a difference in the lives of the Haitian people. Through them may they see the face of Jesus.
