Father God, we thank you for Your faithfulness to the people of Philippines and Vietnams. We thank You Lord that, despite manifold devastations, the people and the nation still belong to You because you created them.
We implore You Lord to eradicate all acts of Typhoon, storms, unbearable stuff and suffering that blight the peoples of Philippines and … acts that leave many people homeless, dead, harm and defenceless, and that leave a nation trapped in fear.
Lord we pray for your mercy and forgiveness over this countries today in Jesus name. Amen!!!
