Prayer for Kaikoura after the earthquake
Photo courtesty Marlborough Emergency
Lord, today we pray for the rescue operation happening in Kaikoura, New Zealand. It’s hard to imagine having your town suddenly become a coastal “island,” completely cut off from the mainland. We pray for the estimated 1,000 tourists and hundreds of residents who are now isolated and without infrastructure, such as water supplies and sewage systems. Lord, we pray for the military as they bring supplies in and people out, using their four NH90 helicopters and a large ship. Please give both the rescuers and the rescued safety, holding off bad weather conditions. Grant people ingenuity, patience, courage and hope as they wait up to several days to be rescued. And please give leaders wisdom as they consider what to do about their city, which now lies in ruins. We pray in Jesus’ name, amen.

Lord, today we pray in anticipation of this Sunday’s International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. Yes, we are praying for a day of prayer, because we believe it is important for the worldwide church to acknowledge our suffering brothers and sisters around the world. We should not forget those who are being persecuted for their faith. May we join hands and hearts on Sunday to consider those whose lives, families, homes and jobs are at risk because of their faith. May we not simply go through the motions, but truly intercede on behalf of the suffering. May prayer services be powerful. May people be changed. Lay it on hearts to regularly pray—and act—on behalf of the persecuted church. And, of course, we pray against the persecution that necessitates this day. Finally, we pray that you may be glorified by your precious children that suffer in your name. In the worthy name of Jesus we pray, amen.
(FYI - The IDOP for the Persecuted Church was also marked Sunday, November 6.)
