I found the above painting and the following poem from here:
Graciously hear us, O Lord, when we call upon You,
and grant unto our supplications a calm atmosphere,
that we, who are justly afflicted for our sins,
may, by Your protecting mercy, experience pardon.
Through Christ our Lord.
I think faith and prayers are important ingredient in life since so many things are totally out of our control, we do need gracious help from the Creator of Heaven and Earth every now and then!
