A Call to Pray


May 6, 2008
'Dead are thrown into rivers as the living wait for aid.' - CNN.com

Homeless children watched Tuesday as solemn men unceremoniously dropped dead bodies into the river of this southern Myanmar township.

The funeral-like procession to the river was one of the many disturbing images of the destruction left by Myanmar's deadly cyclone.
The cyclone's devastation could be seen everywhere in Bogalay. The estimated 240 km/hr (150mph) winds spared only four of the 369 homes in a village here.
The nationwide death toll was estimated by state run media and opposition sources at more than 22,000.
Almost half of the total death toll could have come from Bogalay, according to an estimate by China's state run news agency Xinhua. Many of the survivors have been left with nothing.
They sat in roofless homes, parasols their only protection from the rain that continued to fall.

Let us all pray for Myanmar

  • pray for more aid be provided to help the victims, especially in food, medicines and water supplies.
  • pray for aid to restore their homes, at least a shelter for the homeless.
  • pray for God's people to rise up to pray, to give, to go and to help in this time of need.
  • pray for God's grace & mercy upon these people and He will intervene and show Himself amongst the people.

Like every disaster, we need to respond quickly. IT IS NOW!!

Habakkuk 3:2
LORD, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds,
O LORD. Renew them in our day, in our time make them known;
in wrath remember mercy.
