We have a map of the world in our home office. It's a reminder to us as a family to love all God's people and lift up the nations in prayer.
Today we are remembering the nation of Haiti. We pray for mercy, help, and comfort for the injured and grieving. We pray for more survivors to be found, for aid to get through to where it is needed, and for order and peace to triumph over confusion and fear. We pray for those in our country who have loved ones in Haiti and who are waiting for news. Lord, give them strength.
"Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me!
For my soul trusts in You;
and in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge,
Until these calamities have passed by." Psalm 57:1
