A Prayer for Japan’s Nuclear Crisis

posted by Mark Herringshaw

Waves of fear are sweeping Japan today, compounding shock and grief following last week’s massive earthquake. The nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Dai-ichi power plant is mounting. Fuel rods appear to be overheating in three damaged reactors crippled by the massive quake. Radiation has leaked into the atmosphere and the reactors may be in the process of “meltdown.” Officials are scrambling to find ways to cool the systems, but their efforts are losing grounds. It’s time to pray… Let’s appeal to God for a miracle here, and in faith exercise the authority he’s given us to ask…

“God, heal Japan. Place your powerful hands around this nuclear plant and “calm the storm.” Cool the reactors. Where human effort fails, intervene in your grace. You have given us authority to steward creation on this planet. We borrow your words, words you spoke into the storm, “Peace, be still!” We speak in faith to these hemorrhaging reactors, “Peace, be still! Settle. Rest. Be contained. Cool.” We pray because our human efforts fall short. Our technical cleverness has set loose power we cannot manage. We turn to you in the power of your Word and Spirit. In Jesus’ name, “Peace!”

    God, forgive us, forgive human being, for creating nuclear power that can destroy the earth. Use your mighty power to prevent human from building more nucler plants, and building more nuclear bombs. Protect us from ourselves.

My Unruly, Devastating Tongue. I Repent.
If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless. James 1:26 We can make a large horse go wherever we want by means of a small bit in its mouth. And a small rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot choose

The Shortest Prayer Can Be the Most Powerful
A friend of mine told me recently the story of a two-word prayer that she prayed that changed her life forever. Moments earlier she had given birth – an emergency C-section – to her firstborn, a son. In the midst of fear and elation, she suddenly realized that she wasn't up for the job. She coul

Pray While Swiffering
I (Jill) like the Fly Lady. She has taught me to not worry about perfectionism. And I love my mom. She taught me how to clean a house thoroughly. But as much as I love her, her voice of perfectionism sometimes reverberates in my mind and brings conflict to my emotions – I want a clean house, but d
