Lord Jesus I know that You are close to those that are broken-hearted and grieving in their soul and that You rescue those that are crushed in spirit. Draw near to Your many children who are facing times of sadness and loss and draw each one ever closer into Your precious arms of love and support.
Thank You that You are wonderfully good to all who wait for You and seek You, and I pray that those of my brothers and sisters in Christ who, – for whatever reason – are facing times of grief and hardship in their lives - that in Your grace and mercy You would draw very close to each one and gently carry them on Your shoulders, as a Shepherd carries a little lamb that has been torn by the briars.
Be close to all that are grieving today I pray, and flood their souls with hope – knowing that underneath are Your everlasting arms.
Give me a heart that is sensitive to those that are grieving, the wisdom to know when to speak words of comfort or when to keep silent. And Lord I also pray that You would use my life to be a channel of encouragement and hope, through whom the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ will flow into their hearts – to heal and help.
Thank You Lord that You are a God that answers prayers.
I would comfort myself against sorrow, my heart is
faint in me.”

Heavenly Father, it is with a grieving heart that we come before You to plead for our national leaders, who have been so deceived by the satanic system that has relegated God to the realms of the irrelevant. And we pray for Christendom in particular, for the shocking way that we have allowed the world to so influence our thinking to the extent that we have lost sight of who we are in Christ. Look down on us with pity and mercy we pray and may You graciously pluck many from the brands before that great and terrible day of the Lord. This we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
no balm in Gilead; is there
no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?”
