Many people are grieving today. Some I know, some I’ll never meet and some I love dearly.

The depth of their pain seems endless – because it is: the death of someone they love, a shattered dream, a broken relationship, the theft of innocence, an illness that debilitates them, and even their own impending death.

But, Lord, Your love is far greater, deeper, wider and broader than anything that has, is or will happen in life. So send Your love, Lord. Send it in waves. Then send some more. And keep doing it until Your presence, care, healing, hope and joy fill to overflowing all who need it.

I pray this in the name of Jesus, absolutely trusting in the power of Your promise.
