Merciful God, you give the grace that helps in times of need. Surround the people of Beirut and Lebanon with your steadfast love and support them in their distress. By the power of your Spirit, heal them in their pain and grief. Strengthen us all to respond with hearts and minds made whole in the name of the risen Christ. Amen.
