Pray for all those affected by last week’s 7.5-magnitude earthquake. Ongoing aftershocks have increased the death toll to at least 67. Red Cross officials estimate that 500 people are injured and 127,000 are in need of immediate assistance. A major obstacle is that landslides have blocked vital roads and made the hardest-hit areas unreachable by vehicle, leaving thousands of victims trapped without needed food, water, and shelter.

Pray for an end to the aftershocks and landslides so that aid can be delivered. Pray for immediate relief and long-term recovery.
