A Prayer for The Philippines

Posted by on Nov 10, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Father God, Creator of all things,

Of moon and sun, of stars and planets, of wind and waves and mankind and creatures.

Your hand brings beauty yet evil warps it.  Your breathe provides breezes that calm the face and refresh the spirit.  Yet the brokenness of this world turns them into typhoons that wreak destruction and destroy your people. 

We pray for the people of the Philippines.  They are your people and thus our hearts join with yours and beg your mercy for them.  We mourn with those who mourn the loss of family and friends.  We mourn with those who mourn the loss of home and well-being.  We mourn with those who mourn the loss of security and prosperity.  We mourn.

We pray protection in the aftermath of the storm.  We pray you keep disease away so that more harm does not befall them.  We pray the weather become clear so that no additional hardship be upon them.  We pray that as they walk through the debris, their spirits not be broken.

We pray your Spirit to move amongst the Church in the Philippines.  We pray you provide the words your Church needs to minister, the hands your Church needs to care, and the monies your Church needs to repair.

We pray your blessing upon these, your people.

In the name of Jesus.

Amen.
