Myanmar was ravaged by Cylone Nargis. The tragedy claimed tens of thousands of lives, leaving the nation in a pathetic state.
The onslaught of the cylone is most terrific. Myanmar's military government raised its death toll to nearly 22,500 with a further 41,000 missing, nearly all of them from a massive storm surge that swept into the Irrawaddy delta.
God of all comfort, help us to hear the pathetic cries of the suffering people in Myanmar. Soften our hearts that we may respond, and give us courage to act in the name and power of Jesus Christ. Amen.
