Prayer for Haiti Mothers

This text from a friend, formerly a Regnum Christi member.
I am glad that her prayer prompted me to explicitly remember the people of Haiti on this blog

Lord, I just want to say THANK YOU, 
because this morning  I woke up and knew where my children were. 
Because this morning my home was still standing,
because this morning  I am not crying because my husband, my child, my
brother or sister needs to be buried out from underneath a pile of concrete,
because this morning I was able to drink a glass of water, because this
morning I was able to turn on the light, 

because this morning I was able to
take a shower, because this morning I was not planning a funeral, but most
of all I thank  you this morning 

because I still have life and a voice to
cry  out for the people of Haiti

Lord I cry out to you, the one that makes
the impossible, possible, the one that turns darkness in to light, 

I cry out that you give those mothers strength, that  you give them
 peace that surpasses all understanding

that  you may open the streets so
that help can come, that you may provide doctors, nurses, food, water, and
all that they need in a blink of an eye. 

For all those that have lost family
members, give them peace, give them hope, give them courage to continue to
go on! 

Protect the children and shield them with your power.
I pray all this in the name of Jesus!!!
To all my friends please continue to forward this so that we can pray
together for the people in Haiti.
We here are truly blessed!!!!!
