Some people are terrified because of the Mayan apocalypse prediction of the history of the world ending on December 21st.
The London Telegraph newspaper has reported,
- "Russia saw people in Omutninsk, in Kirov region, rushing to buy kerosene and supplies after a newspaper article, supposedly written by a Tibetan monk, confirmed the end of the world."
- "Some in China are taking the prospect of Armageddon seriously with panic buying of candles reported in Sichuan province."
We can begin to pray for the people that are scared.
- Pray for anyone contemplating suicide to avoid taking his or her life.
- Pray for scared people to encounter the love of God because the Bible teaches "perfect love casts out fear" - 1 John 4:18.
- Pray for businessmen that are exploiting the situation to stop taking advantage of people.
