This year my fellow Okinawan missionaries and I spent our annual Day of Prayer on Kerima Island, a tiny island two hours by ferry from Naha City. We spent the night and prayed for Japan, our mission and our churches.
In addition to prayer, we spent quality time being swept away in the strangely strong surf action along the beach, and snorkeling over the coral reefs. The water around Kerima is clear as glass and the fish we saw- large and plentiful.
The impression I'm left with after this year's day of prayer is how amazing the Creator God is. How beautiful his work, and how lovely to both play and pray in it, in this case it was hard to feel a difference, playing was an act of prayer, and prayer was in fact play.
