Praying for those affected by the Spanish Train Derailment

Compassionate God, whose Son Jesus wept at the grave of his friend Lazarus: Draw near to the people of Santiago de Compostela, Spain in this time of sorrow and anguish, comfort those who mourn, strengthen those who are weary, encourage those in despair, and lead us all to fullness of life; through the same Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever. Amen.

--Prayer on the Occasion of a Disaster from Holy Women, Holy Men
