girl praying

Lord, I just want to say thank you,
Because this morning I woke up.
Because this morning my home was still standing,
Because this morning I am not crying,
Because my family does not need to be buried or to be pulled out from underneath a pile of concrete,
Because this morning I was able to drink a glass of water,
Because this morning I was able to take a shower,
Because this morning I was able to go to work,
Because this morning I was not planning a funeral.

But most of all I thank you this morning because I still have life and a voice to cry out for the people of Japan.
Lord I cry out to you, the One that makes the impossible possible,
The One that turns darkness in to light,
I cry out that You give those family strength,

cry out to lord

That You give them peace that surpasses all understanding,
That You may open the streets so that help can come,
That You may provide doctors, nurses, food, water, medicine and all that they need in a blink of an eye.

For all those that have lost family members, give them peace, give them hope, give them courage to continue to go on!
Protect the children and shield them with your power.
I pray all this in the name of Jesus… AMEN.

To all friends, please share this so that we can pray together for the people in Japan.
