I love to study the Samurai era of Japanese history. I am trying to learn to speak Japanese. I like sumo, sushi, and Shito-ryu karate (which I teach). I also have two ladies in the church I serve who were born in Japan (they married American servicemen). I know they are troubled by the disaster which has befallen their country.
I am praying for Japan. The tragedy they must now cope with is beyond human comprehension. It is, however, not beyond the compassion of our Lord. I am praying that that through this event, the church in Japan will be able to demonstrate how God guides and gives through times like this.
Please watch over the Land of the Rising Sun
Help those who have lost everything
Comfort those who have lost loved ones
Bless those who show compassion in you name
Help Japan to overcome this adversity
through the love you have for them
Even those who do not yet know you
