Prayer helps me when I’m sad. I often pray for others when I’m hurting. This is my prayer today:
It’s just a week before Christmas and so many of my friends are hurting. They are missing loved ones who are no longer living on earth.
Please, Lord, fill them with Your joy and peace. Remind them of Your love. Fill our hearts with sweet memories of Christmases past and hope for the future.
Help us all to remember what Christmas is all about: You love us so much that You gave Your Son that we might have relationship with You and that we might have eternal life.
Thank you, Father, for Your love and grace.
