Please Pray for Japan
I have been sitting here for the past few days watching the death toll rise after the quake and tsunami. I have been watching the missing number of people rise as well. Now there is the concern of the nuclear power plants. I then watch the videos and pictures of cars, trains, houses and people being swept away when the tsunami hit the city of Sendai. It is unbelievable. And as my heart breaks for the people in the middle of this horrible natural disaster one thing keeps playing in my mind: Pray for Japan.
I want to encourage all of you to pray with me. Northern Japan needs all the prayer they can get. Here are a few things I can think of to pray for right now:
*Pray for the people who have lost everything from the flooding in Northern Japan.
*Pray for the people who are missing. Pray that they will be found and reunited with their loved ones.
*Pray for the rescue teams coming in from all around the world. Pray that they would be able to find those who are lost and take care of those who have been injured.
*Pray for the nuclear power plant situation. It looks like one is partially melting down already. Pray that the people who are working on the situation can find the answers to the problems and the people around the plants have all been evacuated.
*Pray that the people in Japan may come to know Christ through this tragedy. Pray that this would bring them comfort and joy in the middle of this disaster.
Thank you for lifting this beautiful country and the people who live here up to Christ. May His hands continue to be at work in this horrible disaster.
