Emotional and physical pain are parts of life, but that doesn’t mean they’re easy to endure. Sometimes prayer is the best medicine.
the pain I feel
clouds my thoughts
and brings me low.
Help me to feel your grace
when I can feel only pain.
Be my light so that I might find
a way out of my suffering.
What can we offer—beyond our prayers—to those who are suffering? Sometimes a hot meal, a visit, or a phone call can lift the spirits of a suffering person.
