We Need You More Than Ever
Posted by osborne2029
God of all comfort, dying souls need to feel Your love today. They have been attacked in their spirits, and beaten down by life. The drug addict, the abused, the prostitute, the tycoon, souls struggling to survive on welfare and disability, and the starving children, men, and women throughout our world; they all need to be lifted out of their dungeon of hopelessness and despair. Our world needs You, Lord, more than ever. Those living in poverty of mind, body and spirit need a reason to go on. They need their political leaders, community and neighbours to reach out to them. Father, they need to have Your hope. Oh, how we all need to feel and know Your love even when we think that we do not!
Lord, hear the suffering, the lonely and dejected as they call out to You. They need to know You hear them. We need to be sensitive to their deep inner torture. Melt our hearts with Your burning love. Restore to us the joy of Your salvation. Let us take time to reflect on that moment when You reached into our hearts and called us to be saved from our sins, and the moment we asked You to come into our hearts.
Give us a love for others that knows no bounds. Let our lives be spent in loving You and loving our neighbours as You would have us love them. Help us to lift up a troubled soul, mend a wounded heart, and bring comfort to those who feel all alone and unwanted.
Put a joy within us that will carry us through the times that try the most faithful soul. Help us to live each day as a divine and precious gift. Let us thank You for our lives. Help us take time to smell a flower, listen to the chirping of a robin and feel the wind brush our cheek. Revive our longing spirits that are in such desperate need to be loved, understood and accepted.
Lord, we can’t make it through this life without You. Yes, Lord, we need You more than ever. We need You now. Hear and answer the prayers of all who seek You each day.

About osborne2029I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. I m in an M.A.-Ph.D program with St. James the Elder Theological Seminary to train to become a psychotherapist and priest. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
