The community of Grace Cathedral joins with people everywhere in praying for and assisting the residents of Moore, Oklahoma and the greater Oklahoma City metro area in the wake of devastating tornado damage:
"O God of compassion, we pray for the people of Oklahoma: shelter those whose homes were lost, nourish the hungry, console the sorrowing, sustain those who despair, strengthen rescue and aid workers, and welcome the dead into your loving embrace. Empower these communities to rebuild with hope and open the hearts of many to send resources to assist them. All this we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord by the power of your Holy Spirit. Amen."
As we have in the past, we encourage donations for emergency aid to Episcopal Relief and Development.
