Rain lashes Uttarkand




There are places in India where people are praying earnestly for rain to refresh their surroundings, enhance cultivation and above all to satisfy thirst and for ordinary use. Some parts are parched while others are being lashed to such an extent that lives are lost, buildings collapse, and bridges disappear and if it continues greater loss is anticipated.


 We unite in prayer with the people of Uttarkand , Uttar  and Himachal Pradesh and the neighbouring cities. Like Yamuna let other rivers also flow, minus the havoc caused to people’s lives and properties.

 Indian River beds are dry, devoured of its bed and filled with waste.


May the Lord, provider of our needs be merciful and respond to the acute needs of the poor people who toil on the land, farmers in particular and others too.

Inspire the leaders to direct the excess to other beds so that mother earth is glad and of use to all.
