“Earthquake in Italy”
Coming together to pray for Italy
and the aftermath of natural disasters that have affected the world.
Central Italy has suffered a magnitude 6.2 earthquake so devastating that more than 80 aftershocks are being reported, with some being felt as far as Rome. Many have died in Accumoli, and a short distance away the city of Amatrice was largely reduced to rubble. The village of Pescara del Tronto was leveled to the ground. Volunteers and civil defense officials rushed to the scene in the middle of the night and used their bare hands to dig for survivors. The roads are cut off, making it difficult for rescuers to search for people still trapped under the rubble. Because the local hospital is unusable, survivors are required to be transported out of town for treatment.
May we all prayerfully come together to support and uplift all those involved in the earthquake in Central Italy. We are calling the Angels to assist all who are affected in this tragedy and sending love to all the people in Italy who have been affected. We pray for the people who have lost their lives and for the many who have been injured. Let us see the health care teams using their wisdom to make good, sound decisions and to use their experience and education to bring about the best possible outcome and quickest possible recoveries. As we visualize those who are still trapped, we pray that they stay safe until they are found and rescued. We also elevate all rescue teams to be guided and inspired and supported in their work, and to stay open to the synchronicities that may lead to those still under house rubbles. We seek to radiate divine love, that our arms outstretched may serve to hold and comfort the victims. We have seen many miracles in similar situations – let’s open our hearts to many more. In gratitude and affirmation, we visualize this rising wave of help happening now.
