Every Sunday, in our prayer time, we read the prayer concerns on the people’s hearts who sit in the pews. Sometimes it seems so heavy to list all the folks who have just found out they have cancer… or yet another young parent has died… or a young person has been hurt… it seems the list goes on and on. Sometimes I just imagine that during our prayer time we are bringing the folks to Jesus… and waiting for His touch. If you lived in these few verses, who would you bring to lie at Jesus feet? Why not bring them to Jesus right now?
“Holy one, we do not understand why some seem to suffer so. Life does not always seem fair. Today _____ need(s) your help. (list those in need in your circle of influence) Touch them and make them whole… we leave the definition of “whole” in your hands, O God. Amen. “
