Prayer Points for the Typhoon Ondoy Victims



RESCUE AND RELIEF EFFORTS
- Pray for the rescue and relief of those who are still stranded, cannot be contacted, or have been affected in any way.

"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea..." (Psalms 91:2-4)


GOVERNMENT AND EMERGENCY RESPONSE ORGANIZATIONS
- Pray for strength, presence of mind, resources, and communication as they coordinate relief efforts.


PEACE AND SECURITY
- Pray for peace and order in our country
- Pray against looting and other people taking advantage of the situation

"Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear." (Isaiah 59:1)


COMPASSION AND GENEROSITY
- Pray that the church will respond to the cry of its brothers and sisters, and give whatever is possible to alleviate their suffering.

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." (James 1:27)
