Sleeping Where Rodents Breed

A prayer for the victims in Haiti…

In Haiti millions are displaced
by that demonic quake.
Demolished and demoralized,
they hunger, thirst and ache.

We ache with these who fear the worst,
who've searched in vain for hope,
who question if God does exist
with little faith to cope.

This island nation beckons us
to reach down deep inside
and find the money, time and aid
to carry these deprived.

In short, dear Lord, we long to be
Your arms to those in need,
to paupers there in Port au Prince
who sleep where rodents breed.
