Super Typhoon Haiyan smashes into Philippines

575x324_11071724_super-typhoon-haiyanFour people killed as a typhoon thought to be the most powerful ever to make landfall hits the Philippines, bringing with it winds close to 200 miles per hour

A typhoon thought to be the most powerful ever to hit land battered the central Philippines on Friday, forcing hundreds of thousands of people to flee their homes and killing four as it toppled power lines and blew apart houses.

There were fears the death toll would rise sharply as communications in the worst hit areas were cut off and forecasters warned of catastrophic damage before the storm left the Philippines on Friday evening.

Experts warned the impoverished country would likely need international help in the wake of the mammoth storm.

Philippines-Typhoo_2727780cWe may not be experiencing the wrath of this typhoon right now, and this can be the last thing to worry about at the moment. But why not pause for a while and share some prayer for the people affected in the Philippines?

Wherever you are, I hope we take this time to connect our dots and pray. Who knows how many lives we can help save.
