I encourage you to donate to the Haitian recovery if you haven't already. There are so many organizations that are well-oiled machines in times like these. One of the easiest ways to give is to text Haiti to 90999. $10 will be donated to Red Cross if you do that. Samaritans' Purse (Franklin Graham) was one of the first on the scene bringing food, medicine, water, etc. And then they were transporting U.S. citizens out on their return flights out of Haiti. You can donate on their webpage. I know YWAM is also doing a great job in Haiti. They have permanent missionaries on the field there. You can donate here for YWAM. These are just a few ministries that I know are doing a wonderful job.

But most of all....pray for the people. A lot of suffering is taking place. And praying is our part.

Father, we come in agreement for the people of Haiti. Comfort them in this hour of their need. Bring the help they need. Let your kids be your arms and legs. Wrap your arms around the families who have lost so much and demonstrate your love towards them. Get food and water to everyone who needs it. Bring help to those who are suffering. Give complete rest to those who are ministering day and night. Fill them back up by your Spirit. And Father, please help us to not be so wrapped up in ourselves that we miss this opportunity to reach out and give. Thank you for all you've blessed us with. Don't let us lose a minute praying for these needs. Quicken our hearts, Father. In Jesus' name, Amen.
