Yesterday, rather last night, at around 8:30pm, an earthquake struck Sulangan, Philippines (near Pacific region) with an intensity of magnitude 7.6 to 7.9. It was almost felt by the entire Philippines, but the intensified shaking was most felt in the eastern Samar region.
Thank You, Father God, for a short reminder that Jesus is coming again. Thank You, Father God, for sparing Philippines, that no casualties or damages were reported. Father God, please spare Philippines from intense damage. If not, then please protect Your children from the coming disasters.
But most of all, Father God, I keel before You to plead, let Philippines open her heart and mind that she may be able to see a need of a Savior in the person of Jesus. Redemption is near for those who await for the King. But, extend Your salvation to those who have not come to know Jesus yet.
"Call upon the name of the Lord and be saved!"
I pray that people, more and more people may respond to this calling! Father God, You are a gracious and merciful God. Continue to be merciful on this nation; please withhold Your judgment on this nation, and let salvation be available and be real to the Filipinos.
Thank You, Father God, that Your Word is true. You will shake what needs to be shaken so that what is left is Your Word that can never be shaken.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Maranatha! Maranatha, Lord Jesus!
