Challenge #2 - Pray

How can one not be in a somber mood today when thousands of people have been ravaged by an earthquake and tsuanami in the Pacific Ocean.

If prayer has power, then I guess it's our responsibility to pray.  A few minutes ago I closed my eyes and tried to imagine what it would be like to be swept away with no forewarning, be slammed around like a piece of rubble, and be left alone to die.  The suffering is beyond human understanding.

"My soul melts from heaviness; Strengthen me according to Your word."  (Psalm 119:28)
