Earthquake in Japan

I got back in from a walk this afternoon to hear the news of the devastating earthquake in Japan and the terrible loss of life there.As I write I hear that the death toll will almost certainly reach thousands.
I can't begin to imagine what these people are going through and the feelings of sheer terror and grief they must be feeling. As the BBC says a truly awful day for the people of Japan.Indeed given the scale of the tragedy that is surely a large understatement.
These days the news travels fast,indeed almost instantly, around the world
A surprising number of Christian bloggers have already posted on this,they call us to pray and I will certainly do that and I pass on that call to prayer
 I found the penelopepiscopal's reflective blog very moving, helpful and a great  encouragement to identify and to pray with all those affected .
As she says -Lord have mercy!
