Japan Disaster: Prayers Needed



Dear friends,

Many of you know that I have family out in Japan. I am sure that many of you woke up to the news about the great disaster/earthquake/tsunami that struck there a few hours ago. I was able to contact my mom and she is doing fine but she is unable to contact my grandmother and my aunt and her family. Please pray for them, that they are safe. Above is a picture of Hachinohe where they live-- I was so sad to see this. My grandmother is very old and I hope that she is safe. Likewise, my aunt is very ill and I hope she will get the attention that she needs. So again, as you see this on the news today, please remember our family and keep them in your prayers.

My family have been praying since the news broke. I hope that you hear from your family soon. Meanwhile, rest in the comfort of the Lord's promise that He never leaves us alone and He gives us strength to bear all things.

May God's grace be with you.

I have been praying and will continue to pray. I am riveted to the tv when I see the footage of this tragedy. It makes my heart cry out to God for these people, and the rest of the world that they may know Him.

Praying as well for your loved ones. Hoping you'll hear soon.

May you and your mom find comfort and peace in His mighty arms.

I am praying for you! I don't know anyone in Japan, but I have a friend in Taiwan and she said it was so scary to hear it on the news because it's so close to her! I am praying for everyone there, and especially your family.

Praying for you and your family. I'm sure this time of waiting to hear has got to be the hardest for you. Please know that you are on my heart and the God sees and has you in the palm of His hand and will look over those that you love. He cares for the sparrows, knows the hairs on our heads, catches every tear that we shed. He sees your heart and will be a help and comfort. Praying sincerely that you will hear very soon.

Dear Mrs Fuentes

I wanted to let you know that I started a chain of prayer at my blog yesterday and I have had so many beautiful responses. We have all been wondering whether you have had news about your own family. Would you please let us know your situation so we could pray specifically for your need. Thank you.
