Finally a prayer for those in New Orleans and the surrounding areas

I wanted to make this post last so that it would be on top. Despite the failures that helped exaserbate this disaster, the people down there deserve our prayers:

Heavenly Father, we pray today for all those who have been affected by this tragedy. For our sake, bring those who have lost their lives into your heavenly kingdom, forgiving them their sins. Give comfort and peace to those who have lost loved ones. Help those who have lost their homes and livelihoods to find their daily bread and to take comfort in their family and friends. Help all those who are rushing to assist those in need to be able to deliver the services that will help save more lives and bring comfort to those who have lost so much. We ask this through Christ our Lord, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
