Pause for Prayer: FRIDAY 5/20

These are some of the folks I'm praying for today.
For whom are you praying today?  
join me in offering our prayers together...
I have so many people to pray for, Lord,
and though I know you know their names
and the burdens each one bears,
I'll rest with greater ease
if I but bring them now to prayer...

For the one who's heart is broken
as his family breaks apart:
be with him, Lord,
and help him
through his trials, day by day...

For the one who walks with pain
and suffers many sleepless nights:
be with her, Lord,
and make her limbs
as strong as is her faith...

For the one who's grieving deeply,
whose life-long love's gone home to you:
be with him, Lord,
and warm his heart
as gently as did she six decades plus...

For the one whose faith is shaky,
who struggles to accept your love;
be with her, Lord,
and show yourself her loving friend
who never leaves her side...

For the one who prays and worries
for the health of one she loves:
be with her, Lord,
and help her trust your will and plan,
your love for every soul...

For the one who is in prison,
who waits to hear how long his time will be:
be with him, Lord,
and give him freedom in his heart
until he walks free once again...

For the one who keeps her distance,
fearing friends may not be faithful:
be with her, Lord,
and help her trust in those who care
for her and for her happiness and health...

For the one who bears a burden,
unknown but to a few:
be with him, Lord,
and ease his mind, calm his fears
and give him strength to carry on...

For all the ones who've asked my prayers
for many different reasons:
be with them, Lord,
and in your time and your own way
answer their pleas and give them peace...
