Prayer After an Earthquake

Let us pray to the Lord. Lord have mercy.

O God, who has established the earth upon firm foundations, graciously receive the prayers of Your people: and, having utterly removed the dangers of the shaken earth, turn the terrors of Your divine wrath into the means of the salvation of mankind; that they who are of the earth may rejoice to find themselves citizens of heaven by means of a holy life.

These things we ask in Your Holy Name of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit.
