Sometimes when we hear of more bad news our hearts and minds are stunned into admitting that we simply have “no words.” for this. I think if we are wise, unless we are physically present, and not just viewing from the side-lines, rather than saying too much, we should take those same “no words” and perhaps turn them into our prayer?
David in Psalm 13:1, wasn’t afraid to ask “How long O Lord, how long will you hide your face from me?” Of course to then leap from the questions asked, to his utterance in verse 5… “But I trust in your unfailing love…I will sing for He has been good to me,” takes , in my opinion, much courage and faith.
Father, today as we come with our “no words” would you please bring an understanding of your peace, and a knowing of your unfailing love. For every heart that is broken by a reality of “too much” today, please bring your healing and your comfort we ask. Help us all, especially any who today might be asking “how long” to have courage and faith to, despite what our eyes see, despite what we fail to comprehend of man’s inhumanity to man, proclaim your unfailing love. God, in ways we may never know this side of eternity, please use what was meant to harm and bring your good. We ask in Jesus name. Thank you.
