Praying for Comfort


Even when the sun is shining, and summer fills our days with rest and relaxation, there can be struggle, sadness and sorrow in the lives of others.


This week my prayers have been for those who are hurting, grieving, lonely and dealing with deep and difficult circumstances.

As I did errands today, my soul was aching for one who is longing for the support of her deceased husband.

As I spent yesterday
weeding, I was praying, wordlessly, for a friend who needs hope.

On Saturday, as I pruned shrubs in my garden, my lips whispered prayers. Another friend is coming to the end of the first year without her husband. She has been so brave, in having to deal, not only with her deep grief, but also the need to fight for her own physical life.
