Dear Lord, have mercy on us (prayer during hurricane Sandy)

O God, your word says you are merciful and gracious, compassionate and longsuffering (patient). Father, have mercy on us. Have mercy on our country. Have mercy on the people, Lord. Turn our hearts toward You that we may rejoice and prosper and live for Your glory. Keep us safe in Your arms, that we may live to Your glory, LORD God.

Your word says when we cry unto You in our trouble, You deliver us out of our distresses:

They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; these see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep. For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof. They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the ¬†depths: their soul is melted because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits’ end. Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven. Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders. Psalm 107:23-32

O Lord, take care of us Your people. In God we trust. We call upon You in our trouble, and You save us out of our distresses.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
