Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Sometimes there are no immediate answers. We have prayed, cried, tried, gone sleepless, and mourned and shouted. Still, we can find no answers. The days roll by in an agonizing parade of pain. Still, we cannot discern God's voice. What do we do? We go to the Psalms. We let them raise our hearts' agonizing cries. We are honest with the God of the universe and anticipate mercy from him. We choose to believe that even in our most challenging troubles, he will not only hear us, but he will also care about what is happening in our lives.

My Prayer...

Almighty God, the only true Healer of disease and Mender of broken hearts, please hear the cry today of those I love who are in such desperate situations. May your will be done in their lives with tenderness and grace. Please help them experience your abiding presence. Lord, please be near me so I can help them see your answer to their prayers. Forever yours in the name of Jesus. Amen.
