Oratio Emperata for Deliverance from Calamities

Almighty Father, we raise our hearts to you in gratitude for the wonders of creations of which we are part, for your providence in sustaining us in our needs, and for your wisdom that guides the course of the Universe. We acknowledge our sins against You and the rest of creation. We have not been good stewards of nature. We have confused your command to subdue the earth.

The environment is made to suffer our wrongdoing and now we reap the harvest of our abuse and indifference. Typhoons, floods heavy rains and other natural calamities occur in increasing number and intensity. We turn to You, our loving Father, and beg forgiveness for our sins. We ask that we, our loved ones and our hard earned possessions be spared from the treat of calamities, natural and man-made. We beseech You to inspire us all to grow into responsible stewards of your creation, and generous neighbors to those in need.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit one God, Forever and ever. Amen
