Wayne and Sally Curham lead us in praying for the region of Canterbury shortly after floods devastated farmland in rural Canterbury.
- Pray for mental, physical and emotional health of farmers and families. Protection against isolation, depression and anxiety. Pray for a fresh post flood perspective.
- Pray for finances to be released. Government funding, insurance payouts, giving from the public.
- Pray for a shift in attitude from governing bodies like Environmental Canterbury (Ecan) towards our farmers. Pray that Ecan will recognise the farmers good stewardship of land, water, livestock and crops.
- Pray that God will turn this tragedy to triumph and hearts will be turned to Jesus.
