Recently, we read lots of news about victims of typhoon, murders, crimes, natural disasters. Do you pray for them (foreign countries ) or just pray for your country?

if GOD needs us to intercede on behalf of others...HE is no kind of god. Almighty GOD needs nothing from us. HE does however expect obedience from us. the prayer of a righteous man availeth much. GOD does not hear the prayers of the wicked.
And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Ezeikel 22: 30. Stand in the gap means to intercede.
that does not mean GOD "NEEDS" man to intercede. it means HE sought for at least one righteous man who would stand on behalf of HIS people. JESUS was such a one. HE was the only one pure enough to be sacrificed for mankind.
