I have posted this as a prayer request but I wanted to get this out onto the main site as well so others may see it. Earlier today John posted this message
Mar 11, 2011 5:00 AM PST - A full scale tsunami alert has been issued for were the ChristianBlog.Com offices are... time to evacuate to higher ground. Will report back in a few hours after all has been cleared.
For those of you who may not know, John B. Abela (@abelajohnb) is the owner of Christianblog.com As you pray for those who have been hit by the tsunami and those who are soon to be impacted as well, please remember John in your prayers as well.
Father-God, I ask that you look down upon those who have been impacted by this disaster. I pray that you protect John and those who lay in the path of harm's way. I ask that you be with those who have suffered the loss of family, friends and property. Please touch those who have been injured. Please help people to come together to support one another. I ask that you provide for those who have needs. I ask that this be turned into something through which the great love you have for all of us can be demonstrated. May everyone see Christ manifested through your children so that they may come to know you!
I pray that you give strength and blessing to those who are laboring to give comfort and aid to the victims. Many people are risking their lives to rescue others. I pray that you protect them and be with them as well.
Lord, please protect Your people in this disaster. Spare the lives of those who do not know You that through this natural disaster, they will seek after Jesus and come to know You as Lord and Saviour.
I pray that You will protect Brother John and the office of CB from any harm or any danger. Protect many others affected in other countries. I pray that You will comfort those who lose their loved ones in this disaster all over the Pacific. Help the government to do the necessary to bring back water and electricity to those affected. Help them in their rescue effort of those who are trapped in the earthquake.
Thank You for listening and for answering all our prayers and the prayers of many who are praying worldwide, in Jesus name Amen
