Please pray for Japan. The footage of the devastation caused by the magnitude 8.9 earthquake in Japan is absolutely heartbreaking. It was the worst earthquake in the history of Japan, and it was one of the five largest earthquakes that has ever been recorded. The magnitude 8.9 earthquake unleashed a tsunami that was absolutely unprecedented in that part of the world. 30 foot walls of water swept as much as 6 miles inland. Cars and homes were pushed along by the rushing water as if they were toys for children. Since the initial quake, there has been over 100 aftershocks of magnitude 5.0 or greater. Hundreds of dead bodies have been discovered so far, and according to one report, 88,000 people are currently missing. There is no telling how high the death toll will eventually be. Large areas of land are now completely under water and 4.4 million households in northeastern Japan do not have electricity. So will we see more earthquakes like this?
