A Prayer from the NZ Prayer Book
In darkness and in light,
in trouble and in joy,
help us, heavenly Father,
to trust your love,
to serve your purpose,
and to praise your name,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The original post:
There is still no knowledge of, information about, the 29 miners at Pike River mine after the explosion two days ago. Drilling a shaft has begun. It is still not safe to send in rescuers.
This morning at our service, we prayed for the miners, families, friends, authorities, rescuers, all involved, just as people were doing all around New Zealand, and I know, people have informed me, they have been doing all over the world, individually and together.
This is a facebook page has been set up to express support.
Some are changing their facebook profile picture to a candle in support of the miners trapped underground at Pike River; some with an explanatory status update.
