Prayers

I am sure you will agree that the shock from the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan has reverberated to our very souls. I think that one cannot help to be deeply moved by the pictures and videos of the impact.

Ironically, my own city of Escondido here in California is a sister city to Maebaru, Japan. Thankfully, Maebaru is on the southern end of Japan, however, I heard today that the island of Japan has actually “moved” 8 feet to the East which speaks volumes of the severity of this disaster.

At this time, I hope that we can unite in sending our prayers to the entire nation of Japan, that the needs of everyone affected will be met. Studies have proven the effectiveness of prayer in aiding the process of physical and emotional healing. For workers mobilizing to aid the victims of disaster, prayer may be one of the easiest and most valuable relief supplies to take along.

I hope you will leave words of love and well wishes to our family across the ocean under comments below.

Prayers – Lyrics
I pray you’ll be our eyes,
and watch us where we go
And help us to be wise,
in times when we don’t know
Let this be our prayer,
when we lose our way
Lead us to a place,
guide us with your grace
To a place where we’ll be safe.
La luce che tu dai
I pray we’ll find your light
Nel cuore resterà
And hold it in our hearts
A ricordarci che
When stars go out each night
L’eterna stella sei
Nella mia preghiera
Let this be our prayer
Quanta fede c’è
When shadows fill our day
Lead us to a place
Guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we’ll be safe

Sognamo un mondo senza più violenza
Un mondo di giustizia e di speranza
Ognuno dia la mano al suo vicino
Simbolo di pace e di fraternità

La forza che ci dai
We ask that life be kind
È il desiderio che
And watch us from above
Ognuno trovi amore
We hope each soul will find
Intorno e dentro a sè
Another soul to love
Let this be our prayer
Let this be our prayer
Just like every child
Just like every child

Need to find a place,
guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we’ll be safe
E la fede che
Hai acceso in noi
Sento che ci salverà

    There are no enough words to say what we feel after seeing the pictures on TV. Only “God” can heal “HIS” people and definitely “HE” is very close to them right now. Our prayers are with all the Japanese people.

    Celine Dion’s song is so captivating & Mary i must say you have put with the right context. Thank you so much. You are very inspirational & i enjoy reading your emails.

    Blessings

    I can’t even begin to imagine the true devastation of the earthquake in Japan. I prayer that everyone affected by this diaster will turn to God in their time of need and know that He is watching over them.

    This is the most beautifully sung Prayer.
    It means a lot to the people, hundreds of them, in Japan to have prayers said in their behalf.
    I am praying for them!
    God is Good Always! He will be with them and is NOW!
    I truly believe that…
    Thanks for this video.

    Our church in Davao City, Philippines since the disaster have been praying for the people of Japan. God’s mercy and grace will sustain then through this ordeal. May we find the compassion to help in one way or another.

    Our churches in Singapore since the disaster have been praying for the people of Japan. God’s mercy and grace will sustain then through this ordeal. May the people of Japan find the compassion in Jesus,
    and will turn to God in their time of needs and know that He is watching over them.

    The lyric, the song & the music is fantastic but I am very disappointed with the lyrics in that the prayer is not directed to God for Him to hear. As it is , the prayer is to anonymous. Why can’t God’s name be mentioned. If He is God Almighty, say it loud & clear so that He can respond according to His will.

  7. Betty Norris says:

    The People of Japan are in my prayers daily for God’s strength and blessings to be upon and with them through all of the troubles and trials they are facing and I know that God is already doing just that as they seek Him and give Him the glory. He will never leave or forsake them as they trust and obey His voice as He, alone, is able to meet their needs and desires to save and deliver them from their distresses. I pray many will believe on Him to salvation.

  8. Yes, I agree that:

    to the People in japan:
    God’s mercy and grace will sustain them through this ordeal. May the people of Japan find the compassion in our Lord and Savior Jesus,
    and those who still do not know our Lord Jesus yet, may they all turn to God in their time of needs and know that He is watching over them.

    My wife and i got quite thrilled that Jordan could complete his analysis while using the ideas he had from your very own blog. It is now and again perplexing to just continually be handing out points which usually many others might have been trying to sell. We really fully understand we have got the blog owner to thank because of that. All the explanations you’ve made, the simple web site navigation, the friendships you can give support to instill – it’s all unbelievable, and it is making our son in addition to us know that the content is interesting, which is certainly unbelievably fundamental. Thanks for all the pieces!
