We are praying with you, New Zealand

Originally appeared on spirituality.com

I was in Christchurch, New Zealand, just over a week ago. It is a beautiful city, with lush green trees all around the square by the Cathedral. I saw it as a prosperous place filled with happy activity. I felt I was in a community that cared about and loved the city and embraced visitors like me.

After the earthquake, a headline in the New Zealand Herald quoted the Anglican Dean of Christchurch Cathedral, Peter Beck, as saying: “The collapse of the steeple of the historic Cathedral building is nothing compared to the human cost of the earthquake. We ask for prayers in particular for those who are in high states of distress.”

We'd love to hear from you!
