Call for Prayers During Disaster

Graciously hear us, O Lord, when we call upon You,
and grant unto our supplications a calm atmosphere,
that we, who are justly afflicted for our sins,
may, by Your protecting mercy, experience pardon.
Through Christ our Lord.


Psalm 32:6
Therefore, let everyone who is godly pray to You in a time when You may be found; Surely in a flood of great waters they will not reach him.

Psalm 18:16
He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters.

  1. As much as possible, wag pumunta sa baha. :) Invest on rechargeable flashlights and make sure you have food at home. :)

  2. Tama! Good thing you brought that up! My parents always remind me to bring my handy flashlight (the small one that may go with a keychain). Also, they gave me a whistle just in case I need to call help (e.g. in danger, disasters etc).

    Thanks Mich!
