Intentions for Friday

Please pray for the victims of the mudslide in the Philippines. The disaster struck a village of about [updated] 2500 people.

[Update]

One of our helpers, Carmel, has contributed this beautiful prayer:

Heavenly Father
We come to You for comfort as we do whenever natural disasters occur.
We know that there must be reason for them but we do not know what it is.
Teach us to accept them in the light of eternity and as the by-product of a world in the making. Help us to cooperate with You in completing the universe, unlocking it's secrets and removing its flaws while bringing about the the fulfillment of the Kingdom of Your Son on earth which is the foreshadowing of Your Kingdom in heaven. Amen.
