Praying for Japan

I was blown away this morning as I first received a text from a friend whose sister and family are currently in Japan. Instantly, I turned to Twitter to get minute-by-minute replays on what had taken place. An 8.9 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Japan. The images coming from this disaster are some of the most powerful I’ve ever seen.

I’m praying for those affected by this tragic earthquake and those who are continuing to evacuate from the path of the resulting tsunami.
