A prayer from an English Prayer book of the 1800’s

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 mercies’ sake in Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord.  Amen


The mission of this parish has been summed up in the words of Jesus when he said,   “We are to love the Lord, our God, with all our heart, and with all our soul, and with all our mind, and with all our strength; and our neighbor and mind; and our neighbor as ourselves.”

Let us remember those who have suffered loss, emotional upheaval, and deep disruption during the recent storms, earthquake and fires.  Let us hold the first responders in our prayers as they work to meet crucial and life saving challenges, let up pray for those in government as they work to bring about relief and restore our communities.  

Let us remember those close to us, and those who we may never meet, who have been deeply shaken.  May the blessings of God work in ways beyond our imagination.
