Entire villages higher up in the mountains were levelled. In many, at least half of the population appears to have died.

Time is running out on all of us. We need to act fast. We need to pray for the bereaved, hurting and the wounded to heal. Also, we need to be reminded that God’s word warns us about these earthquakes as signs of the last days meant to precede the coming of His Son Jesus Christ.

Let Us Pray

Heavenly Father show us mercy. Help and heal those affected directly and indirectly by the earthquakes in around the world, particularly in Morocco and Italy. Help the rest of us to amend our ways, forgive us and help us to be conscious of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in the name of your Son Jesus Christ.
