But I call to God, and the Lord saves me. Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and He hears my voice. Psalm 55:16-17
It’s inescapable. Life is full of disappointment and heartbreak. Who can journey through this life without coming face to face with trials and tumultuous times? Tragedy immobilizes and weakens. It catches us completely off guard and threatens to suck the joy of life right out of us?
What do you do when your family’s world is turned upside down? What do you do when you don’t know what to do? How do you face another day, another minute, and press on when all hope is gone?
After my only son was diagnosed with a fatal genetic disease at four months old, the unimaginable did happen to our family. When we were told that our baby boy would not live to see his second birthday, our world was shattered. We were devastated.
But, through the grace of a compassionate and merciful God, we found hope.
Prayers of Hope for the Brokenhearted is a book of prayers from my broken heart.
Prayers of Hope for the Brokenhearted is filled with journal entries kept during very difficult days. When verbal expression of my unspoken emotions seemed impossible, I grabbed the nearest journal and penned my deepest fears and needs.
At first I didn’t know how to pray or what to pray. I was desperate and broken inside. I needed relief. I longed for someone to listen.
Prayers of Hope for the Brokenhearted is heartfelt and honest.
My greatest desire is that people will be drawn to this little book of prayers because they too are broken as I was and in need of someone to listen. Sometimes our deepest hurts are the most difficult to express. But these prayers will ignite a desire in the hearts of all who read them to honestly seek God.
Prayer is a simple yet real way to connect to God. And prayer is the only way that this kind of pain can be shared…then lifted.
Prayers of Hope for the Brokenhearted is an opportunity to spend time with the God who sees and hears…and loves you more than you can fathom.
