A Prayer for London
This photo of St. Paul's during the Blitz serves as a reminder that the people of London have triumphed over great adversity in the past, and with God's help will again undoubtedly acquit themselves with honor.
O MERCIFUL God, and heavenly Father, who hast taught us in thy holy Word that thou dost not willingly afflict or grieve the children of men; Look with pity, we beseech thee, upon the sorrows of thy servants the people of London, for whom our prayers are offered. Remember them, O Lord, in mercy; endue their souls with patience; comfort them with a sense of thy goodness; lift up thy countenance upon them, and give them peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
