O God, yet another phone call about tragedy, loss, poor prognosis, emergency surgery, tumors, pain and suffering. What can I say?
There is yet another sound bite of misfortune and misspent opportunities. What can I say?
There are yet too many crises in too many places with too many people we care about and a multitude of people we do not know. What can I say?
God said to me, Daughter, it’s not what you say it is what you pray.
So, I prayed, God of grace and glory, hear the cries of your people. In the name of Jesus where healing is needed, dispense it now, where help is needed, give it now, where shelter is needed, provide now, where there is a need for sustenance, supply it now, where love is needed, give it and peace is needed, let it abide. Amen
