Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

Pray for Christchurch

A 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck the city of Christchurch, New Zealand this week while streets were busy with lunchtime shoppers. The quake toppled buildings and 75 people are reported dead and 300 are missing. Please join with me in praying for the people of Christchurch that have lost loved ones and for the rescue of those still trapped below the rubble.

Nothing is too difficult for you Lord. We come to you interceding for the people of Christchurch and grieving with them for their losses. We ask for your comforting presence to be felt by the people of that city. We ask that you would give wisdom to those who are searching for and rescuing those trapped in fallen structures. We ask that many would come to faith and respond to your call in the midst of this suffering. We confess that you are able to bring something good from this tragedy. We commit this to you trusting you with all of our hearts.

  1. I've been through many major California earthquakes in my lifetime. I personally know the fear they went through. Earthquakes are terrifying to say the least. I pray for all who have suffered and now have to try and put their lives back together. They have a hard road ahead of them especially those who lost loved ones.
