Episcopal Relief and Development, the compassionate response of the Episcopal Church to human suffering in the world, has set up a fund to support the thousands effected by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Nepal. Partnering with the ecumenical ACT Alliance, ERD seeks to deliver medical equipment, food and emergency shelter through their partners in the region.
They also ask for prayers:
Lord of all compassion, we pray for all of those caught up in the midst of tragedy or disaster.
For those who have lost life and those working to save life
For those who are worried for people they love
For those who will see their loved ones no longer
For those in need of the peace that passes all understanding
For all who turn to you in the midst of turmoil
For those who cry out to you in fear and in love
For those in confusion and those in despair
For those whose tears are yet to dry
For those in need of your unending love
