A Prayer In The Face of Suffering

Lord, when our hearts are heavy, when there is suffering thousands of miles away, when there's suffering right within our walls, when 21 brothers enter glory, and hundreds of thousands weep in disbelief, when the world doesn't make sense...help us to remember this is not our home. Incline our hearts to fervent prayer. Turn our eyes from the worthless things that satisfy but for a moment, to what is worth beholding eternally. Cause us to be comforted, yet emboldened to live today without fear...because we know this is true:

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
— Romans 8:18

At our kitchen sinks or around the world...let us catch a glimpse of that glory revealed this day. 

Because He lives...

...we say can say Amen.
