  1. Herrnhut says:

    Peter, the apostle said” be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, …And in none other is there salvation: for neither is there any other name under heaven, that is given among men, wherein we must be saved.” There is NO other name to save and help.

    LORD Jesus, in you name I pray that you save and protect all those people in the aforementioned places, islands, cities and communities. Help them to come in and to believe for your protection from the evil one. Comfort them. Take away their fears and pains. In Jesus name. Amen
