Bring Us Together, Lord!

While we were mourning Boston bombings through this morning, news of 7.3 earthquake in Iran-Pakistan border further saddened the mood. Loss of dear ones, injuries, pain, sadness, fear, anger is being experienced on both sides. In midst of the great sorrow, there is a little yet profound lesson that teaches us that we are all equally vulnerable to evil and catastrophes. 

May God's comfort rest on the hearts of those who are grieving regardless of who they are and on what soil their dear ones will be buried.

Lord, let the dew of your grace heal the wounds,
On the burning hearts, send your loving rain,
Lord, please reach out and touch them,
You see them crying, you know their pain

You are impartial, we know today,
Just like the suffering came on both sides,
Send us healing lord, in the US, in Iran/Pakistan
and wherever else the grief slides  

Martin Richard who lost his life in Boston Bombings yesterday (http://www.cnn.com/2013/04/16/us/boston-boy-killed/index.html?hpt=us_t2)

Little Martin lost his innocent life here,
Just like the little one who died there,
Thank you for taking them in your arms,
And welcoming them in your comfort up there

Lord, unite the two worlds here,
As you unite our little angels in heaven,
Bring us together in your perfect peace,
Help us to learn this profound lesson

God, Allah, Jesus, Jehovah, Ishwar
Just as You are One,
In this moment of sorrow for humanity, 
Bring us together as one

                       — Amen
