Being among the people of Atacames, at first hand, I can see the struggles they face every day from the earthquake to the devastation of the tourist trade in the coastal city, which is their livelihood. There is 80 percent unemployment here & there are no safety nets here to save them.

So here is our prayer request . . .
Heavenly Father, give strength to the people in Atacames. Lord bless these people here with peace and bring back the tourist trade here. Oh Lord, be merciful to your children here and bring help, for they will give you thanks forever.    Amen
