Subject: Join us in urgent prayer for Myanmar

May 8, 2008

Dear Friend,

I am currently in Asia, and the news of Myanmar’s devastating Cyclone Nargis is on every TV and newspaper. As I write, the death toll is reported at nearly 23,000, but some believe it could be as high as 100,000. More than 42,000 people are reported missing, and up to 1 million may have lost their homes after a 12-foot storm surge swept away entire villages.

In this time of great suffering, will you please join us in praying for the thousands of victims?

Please pray:

  • For the survivors who are without safe shelter, food, and clean water
  • That the government will allow outside relief groups to bring much-needed aid
  • That the people of Myanmar will turn to Jesus Christ for the hope and comfort only He can provide

Myanmar is bordered by China, Thailand, India, and Bangladesh, and more than 90 percent of the population does not know Jesus as Lord and Savior. It is our prayer that many would find new life in Him and be able to join with the psalmist in saying: “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging” (Psalm 46:1–3, NIV).

Please visit billygraham.org in the coming days for updates on how you can pray for the devastated people in Myanmar. And please forward this to as many people as you can.

Thank you for your prayers. May God bless you.

Sincerely,

Franklin Graham
President

About The Souls of Black Girls

The Souls of Black Girls is a provocative news documentary that takes a critical look

at media images–how they are instituted, established and controlled. The documentary also examines the relationship between the historical and existing media images of women of color and raises the question of whether they may be suffering from a self-image disorder as a result of trying to attain the standards of beauty that are celebrated in media images.

The documentary features candid interviews with young women discussing their

self-image and social commentary from Actresses Regina King and Jada Pinkett Smith, PBS Washington Week Moderator Gwen Ifill, Rapper/Political Activist Chuck D, and Cultural Critic Michaela Angela Davis, among others. The Souls of Black Girls is a piece that attempts to provoke honest dialogue and critical thinking among women of color about media images and our present condition-internally and externally.

Daphne S. Valerius, Producer/Filmmaker/Actress

Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, at a very early age Ms. Valerius had dreams of becoming a performing artist. However, like many young black girls, she also suffered from a lack of self-esteem and self-confidence that contributed to the repression of her aspirations, hopes and dreams. “As a young Black girl, I grew up feeling very much like the ugly duckling compared to my peers as a result of not looking a certain way.”
