Prayers for Haiti

My heart hurts for Haiti. . .

I have a book given to me by friends at Compassion that is called “God is No Stranger” its a collection of prayers said by Haitians. This morning as I sat watching the news and praying for Haiti I opened this book… reading through the prayers I was reminded of how strong Haitians are and how beautiful their faith is. . .

I thought of these women I sat with last year as they sang, prayed and worshiped. . .

Ala nou kontan

se pa nou k’ap kenbe ou

men se ou k’ap kenbe nou.


How glad we are

that we don’t hold you,

but that you hold us.

And these sweet girls at one of our churches right in the heart of Port Au Prince. . .

Mwen aprann ke yon moun ki fo

nan kalkil, yo rele I’ matematisyen.

Se ou ki pi gran matematisyen an

paske ou kapab konte tout moun

men ou we nou chak.


I have learned that one strong

in calculation is called a mathematician.

You are the greatest mathematician

because you can count all the people

yet still see each one of us.

Continue to Pray for Haiti and for my friend David who is still missing in the Hotel Montana. David and I have been on a few Compassion Trips together ( he is one of the amazing videographers I have the privilege to travel with).

Pray for the rescue crews at the Montana and for the protection of those trapped.

As well as the protection of Haiti and the amazing relief workers who are hard at work giving what they can during this time.

Please give to Compassion:

Mesi deske ou ban nou non Kretyen.

Kounye a, ban nou fos pou nou pote I’.


Thank you that you have given us the name Christian.

Now, give us strength to carry it.

Juli Jarvis - These are especially beautiful photos & prayers from Haiti. I was there in 2002 with Compassion, and have two boys I sponsor there, so I share your concerns and love for the people. Thank you so much — I will try to find the same book of prayers online. I wrote down one of their worship songs when I was there. Thank you so much, again, for your beautiful blog posts.
