Be Not Afraid ; #PrayForThePhilippines

Let us all pray that the heavy rains stop and the floods to submerge already. If we have something, or anything, just anything to spare for those people who have lost their shelters and everything they have, please do. If you are able to read this mini post, then you are very fortunate to have electricity on or your phone still has a decent internet connection while others are continuously struggling and fighting for their lives. We need to help each other out to our utmost extent.

Lord God, please give us further strength so that we can endure all these still. Please let not our faith and body waver from these disastrous events. We are thankful for all the rescuers who continue to help and save the lives of their fellowmen.

Be not afraid, I have made you,
I have saved you, I have called you.
You are mine, you are precious to me and I love you.
Be not afraid. Be not afraid.

When you pass through waters that rage I am with you.
In the rivers you shall not drown.
Walk through the fire and its flames will not consume you
for I am God.

Even if you wander away from my loving,
far away from home you might stray.
Still I will seek you and gently take you with me
and bring you back.

I will go before you and level the mountains,
give you treasures from out of the dark.
Long hidden riches will stream at last from you
for I am God!

Be not afraid.
