Just a prayer for those hurting today – we all have names and unwanted news to pray over.
Father, for all who received unwanted news today; news that is life altering or life threatening. News that makes no sense; news that crushes our souls and darkens our minds – You know. Thank You for walking the process with us; thank You for helping us to trust You even though we don’t understand and this is everything we did not want. So now we are praying Your Word to You, trusting that we will not despair because we know we will see Your goodness while we yet live here on this sin cursed planet; we will wait for You to strengthen us and comfort us and give us courage to walk the roads before us. We trust You to make a way where we see no way. We trust You to do what is right and holy and loving and kind in the midst of evil; that not only will You give love and grace and kindness to those hurting but You will enable us to come alongside and be Your helpers. Not that You need our help but You have welcomed us as Your helpers and we are so grateful.
