Christchurch in our prayers

Please pray for the people of Christchurch and the people of New Zealand.



Today this beautiful city, that has already experienced a major earthquake recently, along with a large number of aftershocks for the past six months, was devastated by a major earthquake only 10km from the city and only 5km deep.

The city looks like a war zone.  65 people have already been confirmed dead and hundreds are trapped in buildings or missing.

The city has been declared a state of emergency, our country is in shock.

Kia Kaha, the people of Christchurch.  Our hearts and prayers are with you.

Such a tragedy. I couldn't stop thinking about all the families trying to get their little ones to sleep, some not knowing if their loved ones will be rescued. My heart and prayers go out to them. So sad x

It is awful, isn't it... my heart is absolutely aching... I am so sad and upset and horrified by what I've been seeing on the news. Have been praying hard ever since we found out about it.
