Today, if you need some way to focus, pray. Pray for the ones hurting in Japan after the massive and ongoing quake and Tsunami. Here's the link to the story on Yahoo: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/ap_on_re_as/as_japan_earthquake.
Pray it gets averted. It is going toward Hawaii. Pray for protection, for God's providence, God's mercy and power to shield all from this power of nature.
I realized this morning as I read this story that in this way world news in a second is a blessing in that we can pray for people all over the world specifically. We can know how to pray. We can lift people up to God in prayer.
Prayer is a most potent weapon God has given us. Use it wisely. Use it well. Use it often. Use it now.
