A Prayer of Thanksgiving for the Tsunami at Bay
Father of mercies,
hear me for Jesus' sake.
My heart is an unspent tsunami of sin,
a torrent of corruption since childhood days,
flowing on in every part of my being.
You alone hold back my terror and dismay,
without your grace to constrain, I fall on all in my way.
Pour oil on my troubled waters,
swallow up this poisoned ocean and,
give me summer weather in my heart.
