"We pray for the merciful Lord to protect you from all the distress associated with natural disasters, and to give you the strength needed to recover from the devastation," reads the letter.

Addressing Ambassador John Tefft, Patriarch Sviatoslav said: "We unite our prayers with those around the world, which ask the Lord to comfort those affected by the devastation and destruction of their homes, businesses, towns and villages as a result of Hurricane Sandy."

The patriarch asked God for His blessing and protection for all who provide support to victims and help the recovery.
