Father Jean Jadotte, associate pastor of Miami's Notre Dame D'Haiti parish, sends these prayer intentions for Haiti:
-We are praying for hope despite this situation, that even as we face darkness, people may see a pinpoint of light.
-Praying for families.
-Pray for a greater conscience among everyone not just in Haiti but all over that we must do something [to help].
-Pray for a spirit of thanksgiving for international agencies for their good heart and good faith.
-Pray for relief workers to have a spirit of patience and perseverance.
-For those who at this time are in search of meaning in their lives and peace.
The people of Haiti are weighing heavy on my mind. I have done a little research to see what reputable organizations have set up relief funds to help aid in this devastation. There are many, inlcuding one fellow blogger. Here are some organizations that I trust.
Catholic Relief Services
Church World Service
United Church of Christ
