IN TIME OF CALAMITY

God, who desirest not the death, but
the repentance of sinners, I beseech Thee,
in Thy loving kindness, turn Thy people to
Thyself; that when they devote themselves
to Thee, Thou mayest remove the scourges
of Thine anger. Give efficacy to the peni-
tence, and the devout supplications of Thy
people, and mercifully turn away the evil
by which we are consumed; that the hearts
of men may know that these scourges both
proceed from Thine indignation, and cease
by Thy compassion; through Jesus Christ
our Lord. Amen.
