Earthquake, earthquake go away !
Why did you hit us when we did nothing wrong ?
I am still so dazed over the severe 7.8 quake that hit North Canterbury last Monday. In any one tiny moment, a sudden turn of events, one’s life could change forever.
The quake aftermath. Images credit to all relevant sources.
Rock lifted above sea level by Monday’s earthquakes on State Highway One near Kaikoura. Paua exposed by the earthquake on the coast near Oaro, south of Kaikoura.
Even our capital city Wellington is not spared and Hutt Valley residents had to evacuate their homes.
These are only a few shots of the damages.
With sadden heart, let us pray for all the families involved in this disaster and the whole nation of New Zealand.
(Prayer credit Laura Yap).
Protect your children
Bring peace to the frightened
And swift recovery to the injured.
Father God, we ask for the earth to still
And the water to rest around New Zealand,
Blanket the people in your Holy Spirit
And give them strength
Thank you, Father.
