Earthquake Hits Haiti-- GOD Save Haiti!

A 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit the island nation of Haiti on Tuesday January 12th 2010 at around 5 pm. Scenes of unspeakable destruction and loss there are on the news and online. It looks like total devastation... houses collapsed on each other like pancakes... dead bodies everywhere... the look of terror in the peoples' eyes... the anguish cry of pain loss and grief. God Save Haiti!

Update 1/14/09:
Received news that my brother's in-laws were in Haiti. We are praying for the best, praise God!

GOD, we are believing YOU for a miraculous outcome, that both parents will be found safe and well and return happily to their love ones in the U.S. We also believe, GOD, that the family member(s) who are traveling through Santo Domingo to try and get to them will have safe passage and YOUR great favor. All this we pray in Jesus' Holy Name. God can do the impossible! I believe God!

Update 1/16/09:
Both parents are alive and well and they have enough food and water for a while. JEHOVAH JIREH!!!! We are praying that they will be able to return to the U.S. soon.

GOD IS GREAT!!!! The pastors made an announcement at church today that the Living Faith Church in Haiti sustained minor damage only and all pastors are well.

Various churches on the east coast are providing funds to help the friends and families of their Haitian-American congregation. I will donate to Christian organizations like the Salvation Army and Feed The Children or to Yele Haiti (Wyclef Jean's -from "the Fugees"- organization), the Red Cross or Doctors Without Borders. All organizations listed are already on the ground in Haiti so distributions should be quicker. Try but don't forget to pray.

Despite what has been reported, all the Haitians I know are strong Bible-believing Christians and they have been so their whole entire lives. I have never even heard a Haitian friend or family member even hint at anything spiritually inappropriate but I know many so called "Christians" from varying races, countries and cultures who believe in palm readings, psychics, the "bad eye", mythology, superstitions or practice eastern philosophies. I don't know what caused the earthquake but I believe God and I know He is doing a great work in Haiti. I take great comfort in Psalm 30.

Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death
A Psalm and Song at the dedication of the house of David.

1 I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up,
and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.
2 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
3 O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave:
thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
4 Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his,
and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favor is life:
weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
6 And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.
7 LORD, by thy favor thou hast made my mountain to stand strong:
thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.
8 I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.
9 What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit?
Shall the dust praise thee? Shall it declare thy truth?
10 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.
11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing:
thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
12 to the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent.
O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

Update 1/17/09:
GOD IS GREAT!!!! CNN reports three miraculous rescues of Haitians trapped in the rubble after 72 hours. I am still praying for more miraculous rescues, praise God!
A friend of mine in Jamaica sent me the following prayer, I don't know who the original author is but it is powerful.

A Prayer For Haiti:

LORD, I just want to say THANK YOU, because this morning I woke up and knew where my children were. Because this morning my home was still standing, because this morning I am not crying because my husband, my child, my brother or sister needs to be pried out from underneath a pile of concrete, because this morning I was able to drink a glass of water, because this morning I was able to turn on the light, because this morning I was able to take a shower, because this morning I was not planning a funeral, but most of all I thank you this morning because I still have life and a voice to cry out for the people of Haiti. Lord I cry out to you, the one that makes the impossible, possible, the one that turns darkness into light, I cry out that you give those mothers strength, that you give them peace that surpasses all understanding, that you may open the streets so that help can come, that you may provide doctors, nurses, food, water, and all that they need in a blink of an eye. For all those that have lost family members, give them peace, give them hope, give them courage to continue to go on! Protect the children and shield them with your power. I pray all this in the name of Jesus!!!

Please copy and forward this so that we can pray together for the people in Haiti .
We here are truly blessed!!!!!
