URGENT Call for Prayer for our God’s own Country – Kerala:
Calling every Church to make this Sunday a Day of Prayer, 19 August 2018. The power of our prayers is starting to do miracles. God WILL extend His Mighty Hands and calm the weather. Heavy storms across Kerala have weakened and is forecasted to weaken in coming hours! വെള്ളം ഇറങ്ങി തുടങ്ങിയതോടെ ആളുകള് വീടുകളിലേക്ക് തിരിച്ചു പോകാന് ഉള്ള ശ്രമങ്ങള് തുടങ്ങി. Can I hear an “Amen”!!!
I am told that, 400 plus (known till today) people have died. More than 200,000 people are still strapped in flooded homes and various building without power, clean water, food, medical supplies, and phones. Prayers and thanks to the unconditional sacrifices by the Indian Department of Defense – The Indian Navy has suspended all its training activities to divert resources for relief operations. Let us pray for the rescue teams!
Now we ask God to completely stop the rain and REMOVE the dark cloud over Kerala! Let the sun come out strong bringing hope to millions. Regardless of race, color, or religion – please come together once again for our beloved Kerala which is slowly recovering from the receding water. 💦 This catastrophe impacted 38 plus million people living in Kerala. Now comes increased homelessness, hunger, poverty, and major diseases taking a toll on many more lives.
NOT just through prayers – In addition, collectively our generosity and sharing through social media in the last 48 hours also helped to proudly raised over ₹ 4 Crores (INR) (using a handful of Legitimate verified fundraisers in the USA) – 100% going directly to the CM’s disaster relief fund – to help our struggling families who lost everything in Kerala. Can I hear another Amen for those did the fundraising!
We need to come together again as a mighty nation! Throughout the history of the Bible, whenever a nation came together to fast and pray and repent, God immediately had mercy on the nation and prevented the forthcoming punishment or averted the disaster.
