Danish Tsunami Victims

We have read reports in the Danish press indicating that there were seven Danes who died as a result of the recent East Asia earthquake and tsunami with 62 still feared missing. We understand that Copenhagen Police finalized these figures today.

PRAY for the families in Denmark of those who perished in the tsunami and are grieving the loss of their loved ones.

PRAY that Danish churches will be able to provide effective pastoral care for these families as well as for survivors and their families.

PRAY that survivors of the tsunami will realize how fragile is the cord of life and because of it come to trust Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.

PRAY that Danish churches will find effective means to show solidarity and convey practical help to fellow believers in the countries devastated by the tsunami that has been described by many as being of "biblical proportions."

PRAY for the health, safety and well-being of Danish missionaries as well as Danish members of humanitarian organizations who are assisting with relief and rehabilitation efforts in the affected countries.

PRAY that this disaster will prod Danish believers and churches as never before to see the need of and increase their efforts toward world evangelization.
