Prayer For Those Who Suffer

Posted by james0235 on December 25, 2007

It seems as if depression and feelings of loneliness increase dramatically around the holidays. I think it is appropriate to take some time to pray for those who suffer.

For those who suffer,
and those who cry this night,
give them repose, Lord;
a pause in their burdens.
Let there be minutes
where they experience peace,
not of man
but of angels.
Love them, Lord,
when others cannot.
Hold them, Lord,
when we fail with human arms.
Hear their prayers
and give them the ability to hear You back
in whatever language they best understand.
Amen.
