40 Word Prayer: When My Friends are in Pain

#40Word Prayer - When My Friends are in PainDuring Lent of 2014, I challenged myself to write a 40-word prayer for each day of Lent. While this was not a particularly profound accomplishment, I was fed by the challenge to craft word into a prayers that I felt were true to my understanding of God in my life and the world.

So it’s with this discipline in mind that I am going to keep it up and offer up 40 Word Prayers from time to time. I hope they are helpful to you as they are to me.

Let us pray . . .

When My Friends are in Pain

When pain consumes my friends
in body
in heart
in spirit

Let me not worry about saying the right thing

Let me not pretend that I know what it’s like

Guide me, God, and hold them in Your grace

Amen
