O LORD, have mercy on Japan and the Japanese

Japan, you are in my prayers that you recover quickly from the trifecta calamaties that have struck your beautiful island nation.

Almighty God, Merciful Father, a very present help in time of trouble, again we are brought to realize that Your thoughts are not our thoughts. Your ways are not our ways. In Your wisdom You have permitted disastrous earthquakes, tsunami, and radiological tribulations to be visited upon Japan and surrounding nations. We implore You, let not the hearts of Your people despair, but sustain and comfort them. Heal the injured, console the bereaved and afflicted, protect the innocent and helpless, and deliver any who are still in danger, through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
