Prayers for Japan

My crew is still snug in their beds, and I tip-toed up to the office to tap out a nature study post. But doesn't it seem strange to being going about our normal lives while Japan has experienced such devastation? (If you're viewing this through a reader, you might have to click over to the post to see the video link).

We've been studying My Father's World Exploring Countries and Cultures this year, and it has helped open our eyes to the struggles faced in many countries. In particular, Window on the World, has been a valuable resource.

Every week we pray for new country or people group, using the suggested prayer points in the book. We'll be starting our study of Asia after next week, so we will have much to pray about as we watch Japan recover.

I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations;
I will sing of you among the peoples.
For great is your love, higher than the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,
and let your glory be over all the earth.
Psalm 108: 3-5

  1. We're praying for Japan, too. I have a really good friend whose husband is a naval officer and they are stationed there. They are all safe, thankfully, but living in the middle of chaos. We have a missionary family from our denomination who is still unaccounted for. Praying for the Christians there- that God will give them extra measures of grace so they may share the Gospel message as they minister to the needs of their neighbors.
