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.

How I love You Lord Jesus and just want to lift up my voice of thanks and gratitude for all that You are to me and for Your many precious promises that are ‘yes’ and ‘amen’ in Christ Jesus my Lord.
You have graciously watched over me every day of my life and every moment of each day. From the day I was conceived Your hand of blessing has been upon me. You protected me in the womb and were there when I drew my first breath and You are with me every step of the way - You have gone before me and yet You are there behind me – You are above me and You are below me as well.. holding me up by Your righteous right hand. You are with me and You indwell me and I thank You that You chose me before the foundation of the world to be Your child.
When I was afraid You were there to reassure me and when I fell You picked me up and set my feet on the right path. When the way was dark and gloomy You lighted my path and when sadness hit my life You were there to comfort and succour me. Oh… and Lord on those days when I proved faithless, You in Your grace remained faithful and true – for You cannot deny Your holy name.
I love You Lord for there is no-one like unto You. Thank You for being my Lord and my God, in Jesus name I pray,
“I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art
my Son; this day have I begotten thee.”
