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…”
