Dr. Norris J. Chumley Satisfied Life

This morning we hear the news that a major earthquake has hit in New Zealand, in a small town, ChristChurch.  There are reports that as many as 65 people are dead, and probably lots more.  Buildings collapsed, bridges and landslides are cascading, leaving people buried.

I offer a prayer for help, and hope you will join me.

God, we hear of a terrible natural disaster in New Zealand today.
There are many people who have lost their lives.
There are many who are struggling for life, buried under buildings that have toppled.

God, only You can rescue them.
Only You can bring those who lost their earthly lives back home.

We pray for the people of New Zealand.
We pray for their families.
We pray for the strength and resources to recover from this terrible calamity.

God, we trust in Your mighty help and redemption.

Amen.
