God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling.
From The Message
God is a safe place to hide, ready to help when we need him. We stand fearless at the cliff-edge of doom, courageous in seastorm and earthquake, Before the rush and roar of oceans, the tremors that shift mountains.
Today our thoughts and prayers join many others
for the people in Japan.
We pray for those who have lost loved ones.
For the children, for their parents who face so much uncertainty.
For the aging and those with health concerns and needs.
For the emergency response teams and their leaders.
For Japan's leaders.
For those of us around the world and our responsibility,
as individuals, as well as the relief organizations as they
set their plans into action to help.
May God give wisdom.
God thank you that You care.
You are our refuge and help.
God, we will trust in You even in the storms of life.
You are a safe place to run to.
In the reality of the devastation and confusion
may Your love and faithfulness bring hope to the hearts
