When We are Broken People in Need of Healing
some weeks that are harder to get through than others. Young people dying of
overdoses, family friends having bad reports from medical tests, little children
being threatened in schools, suffering is all around us.

pray once again and when I can’t pray another word then I say, Jesus, lover of
my soul, bind our wounds and make us whole. We all stand in need of healing at times. This
is my time Lord.
