Dear Friends,

On Monday this week, we woke up to the news that there had been a devastating earthquake in the early hours, affecting Syria and Turkey. As the week has unfolded, the horrific scale of the destruction has become clearer and the loss of life, huge. As I write, 12,000 are already confirmed dead with the number expected to keep rising. Our thoughts and prayers are with the countless number of families desperate for news of their loved ones:

Loving Lord, we pray for all those affected by this terrible earthquake in Syria and Turkey. We pray for all those who have lost their loved ones and their homes. We pray for those who are trapped in collapsed buildings; for all those waiting for news; for emergency workers as they dig through impossible piles of rubble to save others; and for aid to be delivered swiftly. Amen.

God Bless, 

Revd Clare Coates,
Lead Minister for Dry Drayton, Hardwick and Caldecote with Childerley
