POWERLESS, JAPANESE PEOPLE STANDING IN THE NEED OF PRAYER
The dear people of Japan are in great peril, and find themselves powerless to deal with all that is about them. They are a great people with great resolution, and they will not quit nor give up. They know discipline, and they have great courage; but the events of recent days are overwhelming. Have you noticed, they are not gathering before news cameras and blaming their President? They are busy doing all that they can do for themselves. I can think of a few occassions when some of our fellow citizens could have learned from them.
While individually, they are powerless to overcome the elements on their own, they have pulled together. I was impressed at the news report of seventy workers working tirelessly to contol the damaged Nuclear reactors--they are knowingly exposing themselves to greater danger in a determined effort to protect fellow citizens. Later this evening, they have been evacuated. Where are the whiners? Where are the "blame America" crowds?
I have always been taught that we should do all we can do, and then trust God to do the rest. THESE PEOPLE NEED GOD'S HELP!!! WE NEED TO PRAY, BELIEVING!!!
LORD, THE PEOPLE OF JAPAN ARE OVERWHELMED, BUT BUSY AT THE WORK. THEY NEED YOUR MIGHTY & LOVING HAND TO DELIVER THEM. NEVER DOUBTING YOUR LOVE, COMPASSION AND POWER--WE SEEK YOUR INTERVENTION ON THEIR BEHALF. WE HUMBLY DECLARE: "FOR THINE IS THE KINGDOM, THE POWER, AND THE GLORY!" IN THE NAME OF OUR LOVING SAVIOR WE PRAY.
Pray in the morning, pray at the noontime, pray in the evening...pray all the time.
