Father, I thank You that You love every person who lives on the islands of Vanuatu and you are not willing that even one of them would perish. So I make this declaration today in agreement with my brothers and sisters around the world who are focusing on Vanuatu as well. May your Kingdom come and your will be done in Vanuatu today and may every person who lives there encounter a fresh revelation of your amazing love in Christ.
In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
