God – All of us at times have troubled hearts. We cannot sleep or be at peace because we worry about those we love or things over which we have no control.
A family member or friend who drinks too much or who is addicted to drugs or pornography or incessant gaming. Fear of losing one we love to cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, or aging. Betrayal. The loss of a job or financial security. Abandonment. Abuse. Divorce. Separation. Mistreatment at work. The death of a child.
At such moments when we are burdened, heart-broken, and bewildered beyond belief, please help us all to turn to You just as a sunflower naturally turns toward the sun. For if we naturally turn to You and Your Son, Jesus, and place our troubled hearts in Your Hands, we need not be afraid or overcome by fear and stark uncertainty. For You will shine Your peace on us and show us every day the paths on which we are to rightly travel to find our way to heaven on Earth and one day to Your Eternal Kingdom of everlasting love. Amen
