Please pray for those who lost their lives and all others who have suffered. Below [Rread more >>] is a prayer and appeal from LELBA Central Region's religious leader, pastor Ilze Larsen.
May God Bless you and strengthen you. May His Peace be with you.
Yours in Christ,
Archbishop Lauma Zusevics
Dear Heavenly Father, Creator of Heaven and Earth!
You formed the world, this planet and you deemed it "very good" (Genesis 1:31). You gave us a living, breathing earth, a planet that is also fragile.
Gracious Lord, we are joined in prayer with everyone who has suffered in Nepal's horrific earthquake. We pray for those, who have lost a loved one. We pray for those who have been injured. We pray for those that are still missing in the ruins, hoping to be found. We pray for all of the international mountain climbers on Mt. Everest. They so carefully planned their trip, only to experience the unthinkable and unpredictable.
Loving Lord, we pray - lead us and show us how we can help those who are suffereing and are in need; how we can be like you, Jesus - how we can help those who have been impacted.
We pray this through Jesus Christ - "Wonderful Counselor, Might God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace" [Isaiah 9:6].
