Prayers

Prayers for all the natural tragedies that have occurred in Australia's neighbouring area in the last few days.
Typhoon Ketsana in Manila, Phillipines and more recently Vietnam and Cambodia
Over 300 dead.

Tsunami in Samoa and American Samoa. Latest figure is over 140 killed (including 3 Australians). Heartrending stories. Also deaths in nearby Tonga.

Now, as we wake, news is coming in of an earthquake in Padang, Indonesia with deaths in 100s more than 1000.

And on a much smaller scale but also need for prayer,  there was a story on TV last night of a 15 year old boy who is suffering from spinal muscular atrophy. Blake weighs 15 kg at 15 years of age. He cannot walk or even lift his head yet he has such a wonderful spirit. Please pray for Blake and his family.
