 Merciful Lord, look with favour on your people in Japan. The oft repeated natural and nuclear threats weigh on them too much. We plead on their behalf. Intervene, O Master, restore them and lead them to normal living. They are a strong people with a will to face and be challenged. All the same, we pray that You, Our Lord and God, be their stronghold at this particular moment. May your powerful might sweep over the nation. Console the bereaved, fortify those affected and bless all who reach out to assist them.
