The Archdiocesan Liturgy Commission has issued prayers for possible use for the Day of National Remembrance for victims of the Sabah earthquake:

Lord our God,
You are always faithful and quick to show mercy,
the Sabah earthquake victims
were suddenly [and violently] taken from us.
Come swiftly to their aid,
have mercy on them,
and comfort their family and friends
by the power and protection of the cross.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

The commission also offered additional Prayers of the Faithful for the families of the quake victims, that they may find “comfort”, “compassion” and “understanding”.

Another prayer is “for those who are still grieving for the loss of their children” that God give them strength and the grace to overcome their anxieties, discouragements and confusions.

A third prayer is for “all who have died, especially those of our community, that with all the saints, they may have happiness and peace and life eternal with the Lord”.
