A Prayer for Chile

Thanks first to Ginger & Charlotte  at http://bloggerspirit.blogspot.com/  for letting me participate here. If there is a linking problem it is probably me because I have such a time linking up !

I would like to ask for prayer for Chile. After the devastating earthquake the death toll continues to rise and the country is in disarray.

My middle daughter Rebekah has a friend, Alyssa who just arrived in Chile to study abroad for one year She  has contacted Rebekah already to tell her that she is fine. She is 10 hours away from Santiago but they felt the quake on the 11th floor of her dorm.

These natural disasters often make me reflect on my own life. It is hard to say why they occur but I truly believe that God has His hand in everything we do worldwide! Isn't that amazing? He is so incredible! He has the whole world in His hand. I loved that song as a child and as a mother I often sang it to my own children. It gives you a tiny glimpse into God's vast world.

This is Chile

Is it not from the mouth of the Most High that everything comes--
both calamity and blessings?”

Lamentations 3:38




I hope you will pray. I hope you will continue to follow Spiritual Sunday .

Hi Anne, I'm so glad you found our Spiritual Sundays blog and chose to share with us there. There was a problem with the link. I fixed it. Boy, these earthquakes are scary. It's amazing the one in Chile was stronger than the one in Haiti but didn't do nearly as much damage. It does pay to be prepared. It's good to know that God is always in control even when we don't understand what he allows to happen.
Blessings,
Charlotte

Yes, praying for Chile. My husband and I have dreamed of traveling there. He has always wanted to go to Easter Island, and Chile is the launching point for that. We have been praying and watching developments closely.

After I saw this on the news yesterday I shook my head in disbelief so soon after the earthquake in Haiti.

I am only hoping that the devastation there isn't as bad as Haiti and that this may be only the beginning of the birth pains of what is yet to come.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I love that song as well. Many prayers for the Chilean people. I've read even though it was a major quake, Chile will fair better than Haiti.

May God's Spirit pour out over Chile in might and power. May the people know His love and grace, and know His presence, in their dark hour.
