How One Artist is Helping Japan (And How You Can Too!)

Canadian folk musician Denis Gauthier recently released a song titled: Help Japan: World's Apart. You can check out the song's music video below.  It is his hope that those who listen and watch the video will be inspired to buy the song for just $1 here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/worlds-apart-single/id429011531?ign-mpt=uo%3D4 . All proceeds go to helping those whose lives have been devastated and changed forever in Japan. For just $1 you can be part of something beautiful...Can you imagine if just all of us gave $1 what could be accomplished?...Love can make a difference!

Share what you think of the song in the comments section...I'd love to know what you thought! :)

Heavenly Father,

We pray for those whose hearts are open wounds grieving...grieving for the loss of family members and friends. We pray for the countless souls which are in turmoil because of fates unknown of those who made their lives whole and worth living-brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers..friends.....sons and daughters. Most of us have lived lives thus far, by your great grace, free of such suffering. Help us lift a broken and suffering land and its beautiful people up in prayer and help inspire us, in whatever ways we can, to help not only spiritually but materially, a people who are in great need.

We pray that you give us the strength and direction to bind the brokenhearted and set free the prisoners of darkness, as we are called to do. Surround our brothers and sisters in your light and healing love. May hope reach into the far corners of their hearts as they rise up and rebuild their great land.

In Jesus' name,
