on Haiti and prayer and giving

I can't quit watching the news....reading the headlines ....looking at pictures of the Haiti disaster...tears have streamed today as I tried to sort through all of the disturbing images that have flooded the media. I remember feeling the same way when the Tsunami hit Indonesia in 2004. My mind can't comprehend this kind of disaster AND this kind of poverty all at once. My heart aches and I've found myself stopping and praying for these people several times today...prayed for the people, prayed for the government, prayed for the children who are scared, prayed for the missionaries, prayed that God would give wisdom, perseverance, and grace to the people looking and digging for their loved ones. Only thing I know to do other than pray right now is to give here at our church.
