A Prayer of Mercy for Japan

Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in many parts of the world, as well as famines. But this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.   Mark 13:8

Father, you are the absolute Sovereign over the shaking of the earth, the rising of the sea, and the raging of the waves. We see the fragility and the helplessness of man.

We know that such forces of destruction and death are not from you. We know you are in much sadness as we are. We want to stand in intercession for the nation of Japan. Not for what they or we deserve, but Your undeserved mercy and grace.

We know this is the beginning of the birth pains. The time is short, and we pray that Your compassion and mercy will be pouring and ministering in their midst. Let Your Good News be spreaded to this ancient land and people. And let your goodness and salvation come to this traumatised nation. Pursue them. Win them. Save them.

May every heart-breaking loss be healed by the nail-pierced hands of the risen Christ. For You are not unacquainted with your creations’ pain. You did not spare your own Son, but gave him up for us all.

And may You turn this dusk of destruction into the dawn of a new creation. That the SON will be raising up on them from this time forth.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
