Praying for the Philippines

My inbox has been inundated daily with headlines from the Philippines, and a constant flow of requests for emergency funds to a number of organisations.

At the same time, I've been so encouraged by people around me, with regular updates of how the emergency appeal is going for the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC).  To face fear, emptiness, uncertainty - that's something I can't imagine, and so how do we react? We give, and we pray.

My friend Sara has something to say about praying - which I'll share with you - because to find words at this time is incredibly difficult.  Do read and please keep both Syria and the Philippines in your thoughts and prayers.
