Thinking of Those in Oklahoma...

The pictures say everything.  A swath, almost two miles wide, of an Oklahoma City suburb was flattened.

From the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma:

Thank you to all who have reached out to us in response to the devastating tornados in Oklahoma. We are in the process of assessing the situation and coordinating assistance to our communities.
If you would like to make a financial contribution to help in those efforts, please make your check payable to "The Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma." In the notation line write "Tornado relief."

O God who has been our help and strength in ages past, let your loving-kindness be felt amongst those in need and pain in Moore, Oklahoma.  Give those who are picking up the pieces of their lives the hope that comes from knowing that there are many there to help and care for them, to bolster them and get them through this difficulty.  Comfort them now and always. Grant all those who have perished eternal rest that they may rise in glory with You.  And sustain all those who are working round the clock to restore and rebuild their community.  To You, I offer this prayer.  Amen.
