Cast All Your Cares Upon Him

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Peter 5:7

Dear God, in Jesus name… I pray for those who have recently faced tragedy. I remember in quiet solitude those who lost their lives. I thank you for mercy… and for those persons, who miraculously survived—to tell their story in spite of their treacherous ordeals.

With sincere humility, I pray for those loved ones, who must now… journey on without them. My spirit grieves—with the knowledge that their lives are forever changed through pain and sorrow. Let them find comfort and strength in knowing that your grace is enough. Avail them… in the warmth of prayers, from those of us who know that you are too wise to make a mistake. Let them know that they are not alone. Many of us… have also, experienced the sudden tragic loss of someone most precious to us.

Please bless them, God, as they began the slow journey back to normalcy. Heal each one, according to their needs. Restore and lift them up, so that they can face the day with hope and joy. In your love,  grant them grace to recover in this present moment–keeping their loved one’s precious memories dear to their hearts.

Let those near to them; help through fervent prayer, heartfelt kindness, and comforting words to the best of their abilities… under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. May my words be acceptable in your sight as I ask—in Jesus’ name… Amen.

God Bless… I am Wiley’s granddaughter.
