Dear God… in Jesus Name

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Psalm 23:4

Dear God… in Jesus Name,

There are days, when I hear such tragic news… I just want to cry. Today was such a day…

Falling to my knees in prayer, I know that the families must be asking, “Why”. Fraught with sadness and consuming pain… which words… cannot console.

So, with a heavy heart and folded hands, Lord, I pray for those that I have never seen. I recognize my humanity, which includes my brothers and sisters all over the world. I, offer up this pray, that Your love and mercy will reach down from heaven and lift the burdens of the brokenhearted.

Lord, may, those who lost their lives rest in peace… Lord, may, the wounded swiftly heal in body, mind, and spirit… Please, Lord, allow a miracle for those who need one, just to be able to face this day.

As families grieve… Lord, may the road to recovery be paved with hope, while friends and strangers alike, embrace them in love…

Lord, let, Your peace, which surpasses all understanding, comfort and keep those that are hurting… that they may be made whole.

Please, Lord, I pray that You continuously renew and bless the hearts and minds of the families and the community as they grapple with heartbreak.


God Bless… I am Wiley’s granddaughter.
