PRAYERS and PRAISES

Lamentations 3:22-23

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee,
Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not,
As Thou hast been,Thou forever wilt be.


Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me!

 

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above;
Join with all nature in manifold witness,
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love.

 

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thine own great presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today, and bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside. - Thomas O. Chisholm

February 11, 2012: Pacific Rim Ministries’ Darryl and Carol Krause report news of a major earthquake striking the Philippines early this week. As news filtered through to us during the day and later we learned that we have missed most of the destruction which hit many of the areas we have worked in during past years to the east and south of our island.  Our islands had damage in some towns near us and in Iloilo City but other places were devastated with whole villages going under mud and dirt slides.  The damage is still being assessed as anything happening away for the city often takes a long time to report.  Please pray for those who were killed and made homeless.
