Today’s PrayerPoint ~ Psalm 90

“Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world; from everlasting to everlasting you are God.” Psalm 90:1-2

One thing I am always reminded of when I read Scripture is that it involves generations–time after time….from the beginning of time until the end of time…so many people and time periods….

You might not have generations of believers in your earthly family line, but you can look to the generations of believers and know you are a part of a spiritual family of believers. And, you can be the one God uses to impact your earthly family line with His message of love, mercy, forgiveness, reconciliation, and grace.

God has the big picture and uses all generations to share His Good Word. Today I am giving thanks for the many previous generations as well as those to come. May we each share the pieces of His-story to the generations!

 

Japan

Heavenly Father,

The death toll in Japan grows daily. Hundreds of dead bodies have washed ashore (according to the Associated Press). Please protect the wounded survivors, the  brave rescue teams, the overwhelmed medical personnel, the orphaned and the widowed. There are so many needs it is impossible to name them.

I am so thankful You know each need.

Believers around the globe and praying for Japan and her people. It is such a heartbreaking circumstance with amazing devastation. Mission efforts are being coordinated, rescues are happening each day. Help us consider how we might be involved. Certainly, Lord, You have called us to pray. What else can we do? Lead us to care deeply, connect in Your name, and contribute in the ways we can.

In Your Son’s Name we pray…..
