We begin our prayers today in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Psalm 34 says "The Lord is near to the brokenhearted."
Many of us have experienced a heart broken by someone in some way. It might have been a fight with a brother or sister. Maybe it was an argument with a parent, spouse or teacher that left us hurt and feeling alone. Every day has many opportunities for our hearts to be broken somehow – but each day also has many opportunities to experience the Lord's healing…if we seek them and him.
Let us pray:
Lord help us make daily choices
that bring life and love
to all we meet.
Lord give us companions
who are at once broken hearted
yet full of the joy of your healing presence.
Through our words and deeds
May we be people
who bring a little bit of the light of Christ
into the occasional darkness
of other's lives.
Hand in hand with Jesus who is close to us always we move into our day in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
