First of all, we need to pray for those in Japan and the surrounding areas that the peace of God will be with them, protect them, save them, and cover them. We must be praying for Americans in Hawaii and the west coast states who will be impacted by the earthquake and tsunami waves. We must also pray for God's grace during this time. No doubt there will be a great need for supplies and care to the area. May we be prepared to act.
Secondly, we need to understand that anytime a natural disaster occurs, the prices of goods and services almost always goes up. Couple that with the damage to the oil refinery(ies) and we may see yet another hike in gasoline prices. We must be prepared for the aftermath financially and we must be prepared to pray and stand in the gap for those affected by this tragedy.
