Rev Dr Apwee Ting has offered the following prayer in Indonesian and English following the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, particularly affecting the city of Palu and the nearby town on Donggala.

Prayer for Palu and Donggala

Tuhan empunya kehidupan,

tatkala bumi dan air bergerak dasyat,

mengambil kehidupan dan mereka yang kami cintai.

Kami datang kepada Mu dengan air mata bercucuran.

 

God of life,

when the earth and water moved violently,

took lives and those we love

We come before you with tears streaming down

 

Tuhan sumber kekuatan dan penghiburan,

tatkala tangan, kaki dan hati kami lemah,

karena bencana tsunami dan gempa.

Kami datang kepada mu dengan bersujud.

 

God, you are the source of strength and comfort,

when our hands, feet and hearts are weak

because of the tsunami and earthquake disaster.

We prostrate before you

 

Tuhan maha kasih,

kepada Mu kami berdoa.

Berilah kekuatan buat keluarga dan sahabat

yang telah ditinggal pergi oleh orang terdekatnya,

berilah penghiburan buat mereka

yang kehilangan tanah dan tempat tinggal

 

Merciful God,

we pray to you.

Give strength

to families and friends,

to those who have lost loved one.

Give your comfort,

to those who have lost their land and houses.

 

Tuhan maha kuasa,

kami berdoa buat

Pemerintah Indonesia,

lembaga keagamaan dan kemanusiaan,

anggota masyarakat yang aktif membantu

supaya usaha mereka berhasil

dalam memberikan pertolongan

 

Kami naikan doa ini

didalam nama Tuhan yang senantiasa memberkati kita semua

amin

 

Almighty God,

we pray for

The Indonesian Government,

religious and humanitarian agencies,

other communities who are in Palu and Donggala

may their efforts succeed in providing help

We offer this prayer in the name of the Lord who bless us always

amen

Apwee Ting
