The #SuperTyphoon #Haiyan / #Yolanda directly smashed some areas in the Visayas region of the #Philippines this week. The authorities expect that death toll will exceed 1,000 +. This reality is overwhelming for us Filipinos. For now, I can only light a candle and say a prayer. Please join me:
"Dear Lord God, our refuge and strength,
even the wind and sea obey your voice.
Put the wind back in its place,
and say to the sea:
Peace! Be still!
Fill us with great faith,
and save us from the surging water,
so that we may tell the good news of your saving love;
through Jesus Christ, our hope in the storm."
God, guard the hearts and mind's
of the survivors.
Give them peace
that surpasses all understanding. Amen
