As this day begins, I pray that you would help us to find three people in our world, that we might learn, that we might give thanks, that we might pray.
Help us to know one whose heart is hurting. Point them out to us. Allow us to see a person who is struggling with life, with their children, with their family. May their lives serve as a reminder of our constant need for guidance and direction, wisdom and peace. We pray for their hearts and minds today, may they find shelter in your wings, hope in your presence.
Help us witness one who is physically ill. Point them out to us. Allow us to see a person whose body is broken, whose mind is fragile, and who needs your touch. May their sickness find healing and serve as an example of your healing power. We pray for the renewal of their bodies, may every cell be renewed, may they find new life with each breath.
Help us find one who is faithful. Point them out to us. Allow us see a person who is true to their family, to their work, to their love for you. May their lives serve as an example of authentic, true-to-life relationship with you, with others, and with themselves. We say a prayer for them today. May they always remain faithful and true.
Teach us through those around us. Open our eyes to the needs of others, to the pain of others, and to the hope of others. AMEN & AMEN
