June 19th, 2009

I would like to ask you a favor. Would you please get on your knees, right now while you're reading this and not some later undefined time, and spend at least 5-10 minutes praying for Japan? Please. I think the timing is crucial.

Please cry out for God to be glorified, for his purposes to be accomplished, for the devil's plots to be disarmed, for God to anoint those speaking and that his words would be heard, for the kind of sweep through of the Holy Spirit that brings clarity of sin and therefore true repentance and transformation, and also ask the Holy Spirit to pray through you as he promises when you don't know how to pray.

Thank you, friend.

What's going on in Japan?

Hey Hiroe! It's not a government thing or anything normal people are thinking about. My request for prayer is based on prayer requests and things happening with missionaries that I know.

I don't feel comfortable speaking specifically over a public internet blog because some of the information is private or personal. I just know that it seems like more than one ministry I was involved in in Japan (I'm not talking about Hongo right now) is at a point of decision. So prayer is very important.

I just thought if any devastating thing happened while I am unaware. But, I see, something has happened, will pray for the good to be done.
