Lord,

So many people are grieving. Some I’ll never meet. Some I know. And some I love dearly.

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

The list seems endless, because it is. But so is Your love. So send it in waves. Then keep sending it until it fills to overflowing all who grieve that they may experience Your closeness, Your care, Your healing and, especially, Your hope.

I pray this in the power of Your promise that You give in Jesus.

Amen.
