Prayer for relief efforts in Myanmar

Sarah Hyatt, C.S.B.

In the face of such a major disaster, is there anything any of us can do, especially when getting aid workers into the country seems so difficult? Sarah answers with a resounding, “YES!”

Bringing a spiritual perspective to severe weather conditions, Sarah responds to listeners’ concerns about how prayer can uplift the government, support rescue workers, help the global community feel “connected” to the needs of people who seem so far away, and provide comfort to those who have lost loved ones in the disaster. If you’ve ever felt “prayed out” when it comes to responding to global issues—you’ll find some helpful inspiration here.
