Oh, God. My heart is heavy for all the suffering in the world.
Hurricane devastation. Senseless violence. Rage and hatred. Bigotry and injustice. Broken bodies and shattered spirits. The list goes on and on.
God of the world, help me to find hope in the compassion of those who help. Help their actions, large and small, to inspire me to see what I can do in the face of misery and sorrow. Help me to see how I can help across the world and in my daily life.
You touch the needs of your people through their companions. Make us truly your hands in this world, reaching out to bring aid, comfort, guidance, and healing. Reaching out to bring care.
