Messages of Encouragement from Around the World: 20011 March

We praise God for the many persons, many churches, and many group prayers which are praying for Japan. Since March 11, we have received encouragement from persons from around the world. Here are some of the messages emailed to YWAM Japan.

March 12: A spontaneous prayer meeting is held at a prayer house in Germany. Last year, this organization sent an outreach team from Germany to Tokyo. Their team partnered in ministry with the YWAM Japan National Office.

March 16: From a YWAMer in Holland.
Isaiah 43: 2: Stand firm for the Lord your God is with you. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
Psalm 18: 32: For who is God save the LORD? Or who is a rock save our God? It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.

March 18: From YWAM Amsterdam, we are praying Psalm 46 for Japan.

March 21: God showed me the most gigantic fishing net. I got the impression that this net was being thrown over the entire country of Japan, and while many people popped up out of the holes, many, many more remained in the net.

March 23: From the Missions Team of YWAM Santiago, Chile.
Habakkuk 3: 19: The Sovereign LORD is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights.
Acts 16: 26: Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose.
Proverbs 2: My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones.
Haggai 2: 3-4: ‘Who of you is left who saw this house in its former glory? How does it look to you now? Does it not seem to you like nothing? But now be strong, O Zerubbabel,’ declares the LORD. ‘Be strong, O Joshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you people of the land,’ declares the LORD, ‘and work. For I am with you,’ declares the LORD Almighty.
Isaiah 38: 4-6: I have heard your prayer and I have seen your tears.  I will not leave you nor forsake you says the Lord your God.
Isaiah 62: 4 & 11 – 12: No longer will they call you Deserted, or name your land Desolate.  The LORD has made proclamation to the ends of the earth: “Say to the Daughter of Zion, ‘See, your Savior comes! See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him.’”  They will be called the Holy People, the Redeemed of the LORD; and you will be called Sought After, the City No Longer Deserted.

March 23: From a former YWAMer who is now serving among urban Navajos in Arizona.
“What if the believers in China and Korea took deliberate, prayerful steps to do something extraordinary to partner with the hurting in Japan, thus putting feet to their words and prayers on behalf of these people? Would not something powerful occur in the heavenlies? Would not the forces of darkness be shattered and the grace of God pour through in ways not heretofore witnessed in Japan? By acting in ways contrary to the natural enmity that exists between these countries, you might bring unimaginable transformation in all three!”
