In His anger He consumes

Last time I got this message on 9th March 2011 in the morning and by evening (India time) there was a great earthquake and tsunami in Japan. I pray something like this does not happen again.
The Bible says the people who are far from God or do not know Him are void of God's mercy when His anger is expressed. Even though they are created by God the Bible also says they are like grass. They exist for a time and their purpose is not much, so either they wither away and are forgotten or they are cut and destroyed. Even those plants which only bear flowers also soon or later face the fate like the grass. It is only the fruit bearing trees that are protected and preserved.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, we pray for your people in this world that your mercy and grace may be upon them that they are safe and looked after. You are a righteous God who does not destroy when even a few of your people dwell in a city your anger does not consume the city...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
