Pray for the Philippines

Pray for the Philippines

Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) hit the Philippines on November 8, 2013. It devastated several cities, destroyed hundreds of homes and scarred thousands of lives.

I wish each one of us could spare a bit of our time to offer a simple prayer for the victims of this tragic event. Let us pray that God will help the lost to be found, the weak to be strong and the scarred to be healed. May the victims find the strength to hold on their faith and trust again in the hope that tomorrow brings. As the whole world unites, let us thank the Lord as well for all the help and efforts of our brothers and sisters.

Please pray for the Philippines.

Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) Rips Through Central Philippines

Reblogged from neauro of Tumblr :

 

Typhoon Haiyan is a Category 5 storm, the strongest typhoon of 2013 and said to be the “most powerful ever” to make landfall (with winds near 195-200 mph). Perspective: Superstorm Sandy was at 95mph when it hit New Jersey; Hurricane Katrina at 129mph when it hit land.

The victims need all the help they can get. Cities have been leveled, buildings made of concrete were destroyed by strong winds and storm surges. Communications have yet to be reestablished in most of the areas affected by the typhoon. The full picture left behind by Haiyan has yet to be established yet the devastation reported on television is already extensive. The government is bracing for large-scale relief operations. Virtually 1/3 of the country has been ravaged by this natural disaster. And we need help.
