“In the tender compassion of our God the dawn from on high shall break upon us, to shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, and to guide our feet into the way of peace.” – from Luke 1:78,79
As we draw closer to Christmas, take time to remember that for some this can be a very difficult time.
For those that have lost loved ones this year, and face a first Christmas without that special someone.
For those for whom Christmas brings back painful memories of broken dreams and relationships.
For those that are alone.
As you take a moment to read this Second Night Prayer of Zechariah. name aloud after each phrase someone you know who might fit the need:
Blessed be the One who continues to be with us.
Hear our night prayer.
In the tender compassion of our God
We are in need of healing
... Draw near. with all who suffer
… with the broken hearted
… with the dying ones
... with those who mourn
… with divided communities and nations
… with Earth crying out
In the tender compassion of our God, we pray and trust our prayers will know action though we do not know when, or how healing may come.
Each Wednesday we send out an inspirational message.
