People of Faith on Twitter: Prayers for Oklahoma

Many of you who are following the news have been following the tragedy which happened in Oklahoma on Monday, when a tornado came through causing destruction and casualties. Like people tend to do in times of great crisis and need, people have been coming together sending their prayers and good thoughts to those who are far away in distance, but not in thoughts.

One venue which has brought together people of many faiths in this way is Twitter. People of all different backgrounds and religions have been expressing their prayers via the social networking website, forming a large support online for those who are affected.

Now is a time for people to come together in whatever way they can to help those in need! For some, offering their prayers via the internet is their piece in the puzzle. For those who want to help in other ways, USA Today offers different ways to help the people in Oklahoma.

“It is necessary to help others, not only in our prayers, but in our daily lives.” – Dalai Lama
