Trust in Him at all times, you people;
Pour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us. Selah
Lord! A massive landslide in Nepal killed 9 people, and another 22 are still missing. Since June, many people have been killed or injured due to natural disasters, including landslides, and the sorrow and cries of Nepal have gone up to Heaven.
Would You have compassion on the souls of Nepal suffering from the disappearance and death of so many people, and by Your grace, would You allow more souls to return to You during this ongoing rescue work! The pains and groaning of the Nepalese people are crying out to You, and we believe that You will lead them to run to Jesus, their one and only refuge.
May the numerous idols and lies that oppress the people of Nepal be crushed, and may Nepal become a nation that only looks to God and turns to the truth! Lord, Would You become the refuge for this land of Nepal that is filled with suffering, and may they witness You, Jesus Christ, the truth and life! We believe that even through these hardships, You will lead the global church to rise up in prayer for Nepal, that Nepal may rise up in prayer for all nations! Amen!
