A Sunday Prayer 05/29/16

Lord,

There are lots of people grieving. Some I’ll never meet. Some I know. And some I love dearly.

They grieve at the death of someone they love. Or a lost dream. A broken relationship. The theft of innocence. An illness that debilitates them. And even their own impending death.

The list of things that causes grief seems endless – because it is. But, Lord, so is your love. So send it, Lord. Send it in waves. Then send some more. Until it fills to overflowing all who grieve.

May they experience Your closeness. Your care. Your healing. Your love. And especially Your hope. May I experience Your closeness. Your care. Your healing. Your love. And especially Your hope.

I pray this trusting in the power of Your promise.

Amen.
