Faithful God, we long for order in times of chaos. Grant the people of Japan your Holy Spirit to guide them back to peace and safety, and bring order to their lives. Weeping Savior, by your passion, heal the wounds of earth and sea. Furnish those who survive with strength and resolve to begin again. In your precious name we pray. Amen.
