Dear Father, this very hour people are suffering from a train crash in Washington state. I ask that You have mercy on the victims and their families. Bless surgeries and medical procedures. Give wisdom to doctors. May medication ease pain. Prevent infection. May victims stabilize and may they be able to rest and begin the healing process. May loved ones be comforted and consoled. Give them wisdom for how to speak to doctors on behalf of their unconscious loved ones. Give them peace and faith to move forward despite the confusion and chaos in their thoughts. May the survivors of the accident who were traumatized also receive Your mercy today. Help them to process this event and to be able to return to courageous living. May Your blessings be on the first responders and the investigators. Give them emotional and physical strength as they carefully navigate through the wreckage. Enable them to discover the exact cause of this crash so that a crash like this can be prevented in the future. Father, bring Your church in the region into this story. May Your church be an agent of Your love, compassion, mercy, kindness, and generosity to all related to the crash. May Your people pray. Father, in all of this, transform lives. Bring those impacted by this crash into a personal relationship with You. Strengthen their faith. May many hearts be touched by the testimonies of Your goodness being created this very hour. Amen.
