Since we've all seen the devastation photos, I wanted to share some photos I found of life and prayer. Not only are the Japanese very disciplined in their work, but also in their religion. Do you think we would see Americans lined up praying for each other after an event like this?
Japanese soldiers pray over a tsunami victim.
The CEO of one of the nuclear plants that caused thousands to evacuate, offers apologies and prayer to evacuees. When is the last time you saw and American CEO of any company offer apologies to anyone in person, not over some news statement??
Young girls give elderly ladies back massages in a rescue shelter.
These people waited patiently for over 12 hours to purchase gasoline. 12 hours!!
Earthquake/Tsunami victims orderly distribute supplies to each other.
Even in the midst of disaster, victims practice regular stretching and exercise in the shelters. I don't think I would be disciplined enough to exercise if I was living in a shelter and my home had just been destroyed.
A volunteer gives a 2 month old a bath in a shelter. So sweet!
Prayer. Prayer is the only thing that could get a person through a time like this. I just hope that if something like this were to ever happen to us, we would know to turn to Christ first.
Please continue to pray for Japan.
