Our lives are moving so fast with so much of life before us to attend to.
As I pause to honor you and praise your glory, I see there is a boy who is suffering.
Please lift him up into your arms this day and heal him from his disease.
I pray your Spirit be with his family and comfort them.
May your strength in them see him through this time and build their bond of family along the way. May your love and grace be upon them in every way.
Help me once again to share the burden of this child’s suffering and not be given over to complacency and a mediocre response, because I know it could be our daughter suffering and our family looking to you for answers and healing.
Today I join Braden Haskell and his family in his struggle for life and wellness.
Show me how to pray and how to serve you this day. Fill my heart with the compassion and love for others who need a kind word and gentile touch. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
