Prayer for the Philippines

Here is some unbelievable footage of the typhoon:

Sword of the Word:

The Lord is good to all;
The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises
The Lord upholds all who fall
The eyes of all look to you,
You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.
The Lord is righteous in all his ways
The Lord is near to all who call on him,
He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.
He has compassion on all he has made.
And lifts up all who are bowed down.
And you give them their food at the proper time.
And faithful in all he does.
And faithful in all he does.
To all who call on him in truth.
-Psalm 145: 9, 13-19

Father God, we stand on the reality of your faithfulness and compassion. As we see the devastation in the Philippines, our hearts are overwhelmed with the magnitude of the needs and we recognize that restoration and help will require Your power and grace, which is not limited.

We ask that you would pour out extraordinary wisdom to leaders and rescue workers to implement a plan of action that will bring rapid relief, rescue, and rebuilding. We bless them with strength, protection, and the ability to provide comfort and support to all who have been afflicted and traumatized. In any place where the workers are not able to reach immediately, we pray that You would dispatch a host of angels to bring provision and protection.

In the name of Jesus, we bind the destroyer from afflicting the Filipino any further through unscrupulous people who would try to commit robbery or resort to killing. We pray that no corrupt official would try to take relief money or goods for their own selfish motives.

Father, You uphold all who fall and lift up all who are bowed down: open your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing in the Philippines. May Your glory come forth to transform the desolation. May every man, woman, and child be embraced in Your love and comfort. Through the power of your blood, we release miracles of healing for the sick and broken as well as salvation to those who do not know you as Lord.

We ask that You would sustain our brothers and sisters there with unwavering faith. And through their trust in You, may the Gospel go forth in tangible ways. Savior of the World, we release Your Kingdom work here, as it is in heaven.

In the name of Jesus, amen.

 have prayed.
