Lord,

 Our world is broken right now. People’s feelings are intense, deep and passionate. The chasms are numerous. And while it breaks my heart, I can only begin to imagine what it does to Yours.  

I’m praying with everything I’ve got that You will send Your grace in a way that helps me trust Jesus with everything I’ve got, lead with Your love in all I do and follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit all the time. 

I’m praying with everything I’ve got that You will enable me to see others through the eyes of Jesus’ heart, reach out to them with his arms of compassion and embrace them with his healing love. 

I’m praying with everything I’ve got that You will use me to share the Good News of the salvation Jesus offers, witness to its reality in my own life and demonstrate how it actually does bring transformation.

Yes, I’m praying with everything I’ve got.

Lord, hear my prayer.

Amen.
