Haiti has been hit by a devastating 7.0 earthquake that has left tens of thousands of people dead and the capital city destroyed.
O GOD, merciful and compassionate, who art ever ready to hear the prayers of those who put their trust in thee; Graciously hearken to us who call upon thee, and grant thy help to the people of Haiti in this their need; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
I donated to Food for the Poor, a Christian ministry that feeds thousands of people every day at its feeding center in Port-au-Prince, and many other worthy organizations are providing help in this tragic disaster. You can find a list of top-rated nonprofit agencies providing relief to Haiti at Charity Watch.
I encourage you to include the people of Haiti in your prayers and the relief organization of your choice in your giving.
Added 1/24/10: I submitted this post to Bloggers Unite for Haiti, joining with nearly 300 other bloggers to provide information and to encourage donations to help in this terrible disaster.
