Prayer for Japan

O MOST powerful and glorious Lord God, at whose command the winds blow, and lift up the waves of the sea, and who stillest the rage thereof. We thy creatures, but miserable sinners, do in this our great distress cry unto thee for help: Save, Lord, or else we perish. We confess, when we have been safe, and seen all things quiet about us, we have forgot thee our God, and refused to hearken to the still voice of thy word, and to obey thy commandments: But now we see, how terrible thou art in all thy works of wonder; the great God to be feared above all: And therefore we adore thy Divine Majesty, acknowledging thy power, and imploring thy goodness. Help, Lord, and save us for thy mercy's sake in Jesus Christ thy Son, our Lord. Amen.

I wonder what the real back story is on those nuclear reactor's in Japan.

What has happened in Japan is awful. Thousands missing and the fear and worry that is spreading throughout that country must be immense, as people come to realise that life for many of them will never be the same. A beautiful prayer Matt and one I'll certainly be using!

As for the Nuclear reactor's goodness knows but the damage done by the tsunami was massive! Poor people!
