Japan Earthquake/Tsunami

According to a report on foxnews.com, “Japanese police say 200 to 300 bodies have been found in a northeastern coastal area where a massive earthquake spawned a ferocious tsunami Friday that swept away boats, cars and homes.

The magnitude 8.9 offshore quake -- the largest in Japan's history -- unleashed a 23-foot tsunami and was followed by more than 50 aftershocks for hours, many of them of more than magnitude 6.0.”

The resulting tsunami has reached Hawaii and has begun to reach the West Coast of the United States. We encourage everyone to continue to pray:

· Pray for safety in Japan following the massive earthquake, tsunami and subsequent nuclear threat.

· Pray for the responders in Japan that they will have wisdom and insight into how to manage the crisis.

· Pray for the Christians in Japan that they will be able to be a light to those around them during this time.

· Pray for God's hand of protection on the people of the Hawaiian Islands.

CEN will continue to report information as we receive it as well as provide prayer points and support in an ongoing biblical response to the crises unfolding.
