The stories coming out of Haiti are shocking and horrific. The following prayer from Catholic Relief Services is excellent:

God of all creation, as we weep with our family in Haiti, console us.
In this time of crisis, open our eyes to look beyond the disaster to see Christ in our brothers and sisters in Haiti, as Christ sees us.
Be with all creation; strengthen us in solidarity with those living and working in Haiti. All creation returns to you in mourning and your grace guides our efforts to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, comfort the grieving and stand for justice.
With your mercy, sustain us at this time as we continue to work for peace and justice.
Solidarity calls us to both prayer and action. Find a way to contribute and take action. Spend time daily to remember those who suffer. Work for peace.
