Lord,

There are lots of people hurting today. Some so painfully they don’t know if they’ll make it. It may be hunger. Political oppression. Grief. Depression. Loneliness. Addiction. Or meaninglessness.

You bring healing to the hurting in their most desperate hour – deep, deep healing that really changes them. You bring transformation to the hurting in their most desperate hour – profound transformation that changes them forever. And You bring hope to the hurting in their most desperate hour – true hope that allows them to persevere until they find new life.

Bring Your healing, transformation and hope to the hurting today. And, if You need me, let me be ready to be Your heart, hands, mouth and feet. Whenever, wherever and with whomever.

In Jesus’ name – Amen.
