This email from my dear friend Himo speaks volumes about the need for prayer in a land so devastated:
Thanks for your email. We are fine as usual and spending our daily life as well. But we have so many problems day by day. A biggest problem is an unclear power plants. It made water pollution till around Tokyo area, and vagetables, milk by radioactive contamination, power outage till summer or next winter?!
And of course, quake dameged area is still not recover, homeless people are 32000, 10500 people died, 17000 people missing. That area is still cold weather, so people do their best, but it`s been so hard life, so they must be bounds, limit,,,
I just hope that Japanese government does everything right away,,, I can`t image how much time and money we need, I just want to give up everything if I had such a sad happened, just no hope, can`t image our future,,,but we have to build up our future!! Our economy is an uneasy emotion by elecronic power, well anyway a little bit panic all over Japan . . .

Hear my cry,
attend unto my prayer.
