I know only one place to take a broken heart.
I know only One who can really comfort when we’re grieving.
I must have prayed a thousand prayers in the months after Dan died. And thousands more were prayed for us.
And they made all the difference. Through those prayers God lifted my head, gave me hope, took my fear, steered countless decisions and most of all — comforted me. God didn’t take away the pain, but His strong presence sustained me in it.
So many in my world right now are grieving. Maybe yours too?
Maybe you’re grieving a miscarriage or loss of a baby or the hope that you would have a baby by now.
Maybe you’re grieving your son or daughter and the missing is excruciating.
Perhaps you’re grieving the loss of your mother or father as you parent your own children.
Or maybe, like me, you’re a widow grieving the loss of a spouse gone way too soon.
Today, I offer a prayer for the grieving. You can pray it for yourself or pray it for someone you know who’s grieving.
