A Prayer for the Japanese

Hard to think about much else after watching some of the disaster coverage in Japan.
Lord, please look down on your people in Japan in compassion. Lift them up with a power that can only be from You. Comfort the grieving, and strengthen the others to be kind in consolation. Turn the hearts of your people around the world to reach out in aid by whatever means are available to us. Please prevent any further disaster from hitting the island, and tame the furies of the nuclear energy within the disabled plants. Shorten the days of suffering, and hasten the recovery of their communities, their health, and their faith. 
We pray these things in the name of Jesus Christ, who  remains ready to receive all who seek Him... 
Amen.
