Prayer for the Santa Cruz Islands Quake and Tsunami

posted by Mark Herringshaw

A 7.8 earthquake just struck off the Santa Cruz Islands in the Pacific Ocean today, triggering a tsunami warning for the nations of Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Tuvalu, New Caledonia, Fiji, Kiribati, Wallis-Futuna and Howland-Baker. Let’s pray for the safety of these Pacific Island peoples.

“God, you are Lord of all the earth. You tame the waters. Guard the lives of those living near the shores now threatened by any waves caused by this quake. Give officials wisdom to act prudently and quickly. Give peace to those who are afraid. We pray this in Jesus…”

    Hi god
    Why can’t you control all these things? If you are so powerful, why cant you stop all these things. If I am the god I will not allow this to happen. This foolish people listen to so called priest and think that there is a god like you. But please tell me what is the barrier to talk to all the people in the world and ask us to tell about you directly rather than telling bullshits through dump priests.
    Thank you

    So don’t be dumb yourself and blame God.
