A Prayer For Those Who Are Hurting

when-youre-hurting

Romans 8: 37-38 – “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Today, I pray for those who are experiencing untold pain; whose feet hurt, back is stiff, and joints are burning.

Today, I pray for those who are nursing wounds sustained on the battlefield; sacrificing all for the freedom of all.

Today, I pray for those whose bodies are ravaged by cancer; who spend hours on machines, and days in the hospitals, facing a bleak future.

Today, I pray for those struggling with depression and mental health challenges; whose minds sink into the abyss, and wage unseen wars between the ears.

Today, I pray for our families who are emotionally wounded; whose hearts are bleeding from the spears of betrayal.

Today, I pray for those mourning the loss of a loved one; whose warm tears stream down their cheeks in silence. We stand with them. We feel for them.

Today, I pray for all who are struggling, and we hope for their recovery, for their healing, for their restoration.

I am grateful to those who have answered the call to serve tirelessly in our hospitals.

I am grateful to the first responders who are there at a moment’s notice, confronting unimaginable traumatic events.

I am grateful to those who answer the calls at 2:00 a.m. to attend to our loved ones.

I am grateful to those who have made it a life mission to eradicate the ills of our land.

I am grateful to those who invest time, resources and talents in pursuit of an elusive cure.

I am grateful to those who dip their hands in their pockets to fight against AIDS, cancer, Polio and other evils.
