Father I pray for the hearts and the minds of Your children. From day to day Dear Lord I find myself with a heaviness in my chest as I absorb what is going on. I know that You are always in charge and that nothing will happen that You are not on top of. I trust You with my life and with my soul.
In the vastness of space and time I know that change is the only thing that is certain. Change is the one thing we can all count on. From the day we are born we are in a state of constant change.
We are born tiny and wrinkly and grow to be strong. If we are blessed to live long enough, the wrinkles return as we gradually shrink with age. In Your wisdom You have designed us to expect and honor change. By Your desire and design, Dear Lord, we are agents of change. How can we ever lose hope?
I am hopeful and prayerful as I keep the faith, that I may not know what the future holds but I absolutely know who holds the future. The sun rises each day to signal new beginnings. May this be the beginning of the end of the hurt, pain and atrocities inflicted upon Your children, is my prayer. - AMEN
