The Korean church had covered us with their corporate prayers before we started our prayer meeting. Michael Karpf came over from Tokyo to join us in meeting, we were given the chance to share about the needs in Japan and the ministry of Heart4Japan. Phoebe and Tim Wan joined us in the meeting, we made it till 7am the next day.
The meeting was a combination of sharing of field needs, worship, scriptures and praying. Our prayers were in different languages including tongues. Guess I was the only one who pray in tongues that night, yet God is definitely amazing, and allow His Holy Spirit to tear down the walls between denominations.We had prayed for a certain things, including: the missionaries' need and corporation with local church; the suicides and homicides; sexual industry, elderly, quakes, ijime and school system. Few scriptures came to us: John 4: 1-38; Rev 7 :9-12
As approaching the end, Scott called us from California through skype and we prayed for each other, the Lord gave us a scripture through Scott's sharing: Romans 8: 18-25
I called Chauncey earlier before we started, and we believed that Brownwood, Calgary were praying before and after us at the stated time. I'll update more to the group by end of this week. I'm still waiting for the feedback from the other centers. :-) Several updates and notes had been posted by the participants in either Heart4Japan group wall, or the prayer meeting wall. Please feel free to look at it.
