A Prayer for Today

As I pray today, “Let me hear what God will speak, For God will speak peace to the people…To those who turn to God in their hearts.” (Psalm 85:8-13) Lord God, I am aware that there is nothing in my life beyond Your seeing eye.  There is no inner conflict, fear, stress, loss, or despair beyond Your heart. There is no moment when Your arms are unwilling to take me in.  God of Compassion, I ask that You would renew, rebuild and redeem every heart that has been broken by abortion.  I ask You to provide one-on-one care to those struggling after involvement in an abortion.  I ask You to heal any pain associated with abortion and I ask that You wrap Your arms of grace around them, until they are safely held in Your embrace.  And, I pray, that you will fill my heart with the same compassion, and give me eyes to see how I can lovingly be a part of their healing. I ask this for the sake of your great love and in Jesus’ name. Amen.
