It does not matter what faith you are. Chances are, your faith sends missionaries out all over the world, just like my faith does. I have a son serving a mission in Jacksonville, Florida (yes, my prayers were answered when I prayed that he stay stateside). My very first thought when I heard about this devastating earthquake was about the missionaries from our church serving there. Then, immediately, I broke down for the mothers of those missionaries. I thought of my son, and if this had happened to him, and the not knowing. I am thinking of the countless missionaries of all faiths in Japan today. My heart is so heavy and sad for everyone there and those who have a loved one there. I know that there is power in numbers, so today, I ask that everyone in blogland say a silent prayer for Japan. Pray for comfort for those families. Pray for comfort for the mothers who have missionaries, service men/women, students or any child there for any reason.
As a mother, I thank you for praying for other mothers.
