Pray for the Philippines

pray for the philippines The following is an email sent to many Compassion employees yesterday by Menchit Wong, our child advocacy director. It contains prayer requests for our Philippines brothers and sisters in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan.


Dear Friends and Spiritual Family from around the world,

Thank you for your messages, prayers and concern for our current situation in the Philippines. As you know, a super typhoon named Haiyan ravaged the provinces in the central part of our archipelago last Friday. These cities are a plane ride away from Manila, so those of us living in the capital city are safe.

Before the typhoon struck, Christians were praying that the Lord would change the typhoon’s course. As it was however, fierce winds and tsunami-like waves totally whipped these provinces, killing an estimated 10,000 helpless victims. Warnings and preparations for evacuation and relief work were no match for the winds and rain. Many cities now look like no man’s land.

But our Lord is sovereign over all; He never fails us and we believe that as a nation, this is an opportunity to show our spirit of unity, deep faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and demonstrate our selfless giving.

pray for the philippines

We have not seen in our history such a generous outpouring of aid and supplies from within the country (through the private sector), and from countries around the world. Everywhere, we see people wanting to help out and give their support.

Please pray with us through the weeks and months ahead of relief, rescue and rehabilitation work, on behalf of the millions of Filipinos who are helpless victims of this tragedy.

These are our specific prayer requests:

  • Pray that our Lord will give an extraordinary amount of wisdom, steadfast spirit, keen insight, quickness to respond and political will among our national, regional and local government officials in mapping out and implementing a sustained plan of action for relief, rescue and rehabilitation. Pray that the Lord will give them the mind of Joseph who knew how to direct the people when the seven years of famine struck Egypt. Such was his wisdom that no one lacked. Pray that the millions of aid will be wisely distributed and allocated.
  • Pray for our Compassion Philippines Rapid Response Team to be able to carry out relief assistance and to provide comfort, prayers and support to our afflicted children, their families and local churches. Pray for the safety and health of our Philippines Country Director, our Asia Regional Advocacy Director, and the rest of the Rapid Response Team as they are in Cebu and Leyte to carry out relief work.
  • Pray that Satan, the Enemy will be ‘padlocked’ so that unscrupulous people/thieves/robbers will not be able to carry out looting, robberies, or resort to killing; pray that no corrupt officials will be able to lay their hands on any of the relief money or goods for their own selfish motives.
  • Pray that the Lord will give our Filipino brothers and sisters an unwavering faith in the Lord and that they will receive timely help in terms of food, water, medicines and a safe place to sleep for the weeks and months ahead.pray for the philippines event
  • Pray that the US military personnel sent to help will be able to quickly train Filipino local officials so that all (and not only a few) affected towns and provinces will receive timely relief help. Pray that the aircraft sent to airlift goods and supplies will be safe and will help bring food especially to those towns where people have not eaten a single food since Friday.
  • Pray for miracles of healing to those who are ill, and for thousands and millions of Filipinos in central Philippines to come to know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior through the mighty work of the Holy Spirit. Pray that the body of Christ in the Philippines, represented by the thousands of local churches will be a source of sustained blessing to the typhoon victims, in word and deed.
  • Pray that as we see the relief work successfully accomplished, we will be able to declare,

    Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen. – Ephesians 3:20-21, (NIV)

With sincerest thanks,

Menchit Wong

      Hi Mark! We’ve received word that this student center may have been impacted. We are currently working to provide immediate needs and gather information about the impact of this disaster on the children and families in our programs. As this information comes in, we will contact you via phone, email, or a letter in the mail if your child has been directly impacted.

    Agreeing that wisdom and helps may be all that is so needed. Praying that the power of the Lord will prevent evil from prevailing. Praying for health and welfare for the rescuers, for the victims, for the children especially. Praying for warm and dry places to sleep. Praying for the Lord’s sustenance for those who are hungry. And I thank You, precious Lord, for all that You do. You are all powerful, all knowing, and all loving. Amen.

    I am a corespondance sponsor for Jedah Margaret Bolivar in the Phillipines. Will I receive an update on her and her family? She has a newborn baby brother and I am quite concerned.

      Hi Beth Ann! First of all, thank you so much for your commitment to write to, love, and encourage Jedah! Your ministry is a very important part of what we’re doing here at Compassion. We so appreciate you! Yes, we are contacting correspondent sponsors if their children were affected by the typhoon.

        No where on the website am I allowed to send a special gift to Jedah. Is there a way that I was not aware of? I was just hoping to maybe send some extra money to her and her family to help them get back on their feet if they were affected. Thanks for all you all are doing!

          As the correspondent sponsor, you are not setup to send donations on our website. However, you are more than welcome to call us at 800-336-7676 or email ciinfo@us.ci.org to send a gift to your child or her family. We’d be happy to send this for you. :)

    Mark, Teresa, and all others who sponsor children in the areas of impact – I have learned this only from friends whose sponsored children have been impacted by severe disasters, elsewhere, over a number of years, and I learned it after the earthquake that hit Haiti, almost two years ago: It can take several months–or many months–before Compassion knows about your child, or you might learn relatively soon (several weeks). Please continue to pray, watch for updates, and know that no news may be good news. Compassion will call you if your child is seriously affected, or worse; they will not call you with general updates.

    I well understand your sense of urgency to know, NOW. Take your fears for your child, your lack of peace, your growing impatience if the time with no news stretches out–take it all to the Lord in prayer. And may the Comforter, who is the Holy Spirit, calm your hearts and minds, and give you peace.

      Good advice Vicki. I have no children in the Philippines, but I am praying for their safety, and that all sponsors with children there, will get timely answers as to their kid’s circumstances.

    Hello, We would like to inquire about our sponsored child in the Philippines. We are praying for his safety. His name is Roderick Junior E Sotillo, #PH5620390. We appreciate any information you may have about Roderick and his family.

      Hi Cindy! I so appreciate your concern for Roderick. Thanks for asking!

      It looks like Roderick’s student center is in an area that was not directly impacted by the typhoon. That’s a good sign that he’s fine. However, we are still collecting information and if we find that your child was impacted, we will contact you.

    Hello, My sponsored child attends the Padaba Child Development Center. He lives in Guinlajon , south of Legazpi…any word if that is an affected area? (I haven’t been able to keep up with news on my phone as much as I would like to but It has been on my mind and worrying me). I know there is not too much information right now on specific children but at least to see more less how affected his area was. Please let me know if possible

      Hi Melissa! I’m happy to help and hopefully I can put you at ease a little! The hardest hit areas are south of Masbate and your child’s area is just north of Masbate. Your child’s student center is also not on our list of directly impacted student centers. -Susan

    Hello, we are concerned for our sponsored child as well. We understand there are so many sponsors wanting answers and praying, but we would appreciate any information on Tyron Kim Gulle, PH-622-0204. I understand his home is 112 km SW of Butuan and his student center may be in the plains of Barangay Salvacion. ANY news would be fantastic! We just wrote to him, do you know how long it will be before he gets the letter?
    Thank You!!

      Hi Paul! I so appreciate your concern for your kiddo! It’s true that the reports are devastating but we can pray and trust our Great God! It looks like your child’s area was not directly impacted however the storm was just to the north so they might have gotten some heavy rains and winds as well. We will certainly keep you updated on your child’s status if he was directly impacted. Since the country office in Manila was not affected and is still up and running, my guess is that letters will continue to go with little or no delay. However, we have not received word about this yet. I’d say it doesn’t hurt to keep sending loving letters and they will be an encouragement whenever your little guy gets them.

    Hello, please notify us of any updates, any at all, about our child Tyron Kim Gulle, PH-622-0204! We appreciate knowing how his family is doing, the student center (Child Development Center?) is doing and to know he is OK! We are praying, along with thousands of others, and know God sees and is providing! We just need to know he is not starving, homeless, thirsty, sick, etc. The stories we keep hearing about the Philippines is devastating!!

    I see that some people have been given word about the particular area that their child is in. Is there any news about our child’s area? As far as I know he attends the Racham Student Center. Thank you for any info you may have. We have been praying for him, his family and all those affected.

      Beth, the Racham Student Center is on Negros and was directly impacted by the typhoon. Regrettably, we do not have any specific information about the status of your child yet. As more information comes in, we will contact you if your child was affected. We have a team on the ground who has been providing assistance and gathering information. It could take some time but as soon as we have more information we will contact you.

        Thank you so much for the little bit of info that you have provided. We will continue to pray for our child Mark Lesther Grajo, and his family. My heart is hurting for all affected. We are praying that he is ok, he is such an amazing young man with a heart for God. I pray that everyone got to a safe place before the storm hit. Words can’t express what we are feeling while we wait to hear. Wish we could be there to help.

    Our little girl, lives in Visares, Capoocan, Leyte. She attends the Hill of Zion Child Development Center. All we know is that Compassion will notify us when they know something. I’ve been wearing out Google trying to find anything specific about the area, people affected and the damage there. But having no luck other than to see the path of the storm. Our hearts are sad and longing for news. If anything positive is known…please pass it on.

      Mike, I’m so sorry but we do not have much information about specific children yet. However, as you know, Leyte was directly impacted by the typhoon. We have a team that has been on the ground in the Philippines providing assistance to the hardest hit areas. As soon as we have more specific information, if we find your child has been affected, we will contact you.

    I heard from Jhovie, who graduated from Compassion last June, her house in Aklan was totally destroyed. They are staying with her uncle right now and praying there will be a way they can recover. Also waiting on word from my sponsored children in PH924, PH809, and PH864. I’m pretty sure the other 4 are safe because they are in the southern part of the Philippines.

    All,
    Hope it’s okay to put this on here. Google has a “person finder” site. I’ve entered our little girl on here. You give as much info as you like, even a picture? and others can add info if they know something? You can request email updates? If you’re like me and helplessly worried sick with prayer as your only source of comfort…you might try this:

      Hi Ron! It looks like your sponsored child is in an area that was not affected by the typhoon. We are still gathering information and we should have specific child information very soon. If your child has been affected, we will contact you.

        Thank you, Susan! That is so good to know. I will let the rest of the family know. We’re still praying for the children and their families, and the staff.

      Hi Jenny! I appreciate your care and concern and for taking the time to ask how your child is doing! It looks like your sponsored child, Jenny (great name!), is in an area that was affected by the typhoon. While we’ve already received quite a bit of specific information on children, we don’t have anything on your sponsored child just yet. As more information comes in, we will contact you personally.

      Hi Jana! I’m sure you’re anxiously awaiting any type of news about John Wayne! We have begun contacting sponsors via phone and email about their child’s status. I’m so sorry that I don’t have more for you right now but regrettably, information is still coming in and we do not have any specific information on John Wayne. We do know that his student center is receiving and distributing relief assistance. As soon as we know John Wayne’s status, we will contact you with that information.

      Jana, I was so very excited to see another sponsor with a child in the same center as our child John Erick Estrella!!! We are rejoicing in the news that they are getting aid. We have been praying for all of the Filipino people, especially our children, families and workers of the Buasdamlag Child Development Center. We will continue our prayer support as wait to hear specifics of their wellbeing. Blessing to you.

    Susan,
    I have posted here before regarding our little girl in the Visares, Capoocan, Leyte. area of the Philippines. She attends the Hill of Zion Child Development Center. I know you’ve said to be patient and I’m trying…
    I have a question, through research I’ve come across a group that says they partner with Compassion in this area. It is Christian Church Fellowship International (CCFI). And specifically Bishop Ursulo “Ursing” dela Peña. They have offered to find out and send me info regarding our child. For obvious reasons, I hesitate. But…I thought I’d ask, Are they legit? Can you verify and advise me whether to continue this contact? I so hope you say “yes” but will wait for your instruction.

    Thank you again.
