Pray For Japan

I have been watching the news and seeing the devastating waves from the sea wash over the Japanese coast , wrap themselves around homes, cars, anything in their path, and suck them out to sea. I am so sad because I know there were people in those homes and cars who have to be dead.I watched the waves wash over highways where cars driving along them were also swept off and carried into the sea. ..."who enclosed the sea with doors, when bursting forth , it went out from the womb.." God - Job 38:8 "Of old Thou didst found the earth, And the heavens are the work of Thy hands, Even they will perish, but Thou dost endure ; And all of them will perish, but Thou will endure; And all of them will wear out as a garment, Like clothing Thou will change them, and they will be changed, But Thou art the same..." Psalm 102:18 The Japanese people have prepared their country better than any other on earth to withstand earthquakes and tsunamis, but the mighty ocean is more powerful than any human can prepare for when its' power is unleashed.I am hearing on the news now a whole town in Japan has been swept away and the Japanese Prime Minister is exhorting the Japanese people to help each other. Pray for Japan. "..O God of our salvation, Thou who art the trust of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest sea; Who dost establish the mountains by His strength, being girded with might ; Who dost still the roaring seas, The roaring of their waves, And the tumult of the peoples, And they dwell in the ends of the earth and stand in awe of Thy signs. Thou dost make the dawn and the sunset shout for joy." Psalm 65:5-8

I'm with Mildred... I didn't even know about it until a few minutes ago when I turned on the TV for the first time in a couple of days... how terrible.
They definitely need our prayers.

Hi Kathy, I know this is absolutely horrible. My friend wrote this on Facebook: "There was a Yahoo article pointing out the March 19 the Moon will pass very very close to the Earth and the gravitational forces may wreak more havoc. This may be the start."

More farmland is devastated, among everything else. I feel so bad for the Japanese people. I'm praying.

Hi Kathy - this was such a devastating natural disaster. I am so sad for the people who died and those loved ones left behind. These lives have changed forever. And the bad stuff will last a long long time as they try to recover. I'm praying for them...
