A bruised reed he will not break …

Matt 12:20 NIV

Loving God, we thank you that you understand the burdens, pain and sadness we bear.  We may appear tall and strong, but inside feel bruised and breaking.

We thank You for your care and compassion shown in Jesus as He took on our suffering; as He gave time to listen, talk and restore all who came to him.

Gracious God, thank you that Jesus is with us today by your Spirit.  May your tender love and compassion uphold us when we are bruised and broken. May the light of your love bring comfort, healing and peace.

We thank you for all who bring well-being to others and we pray that care may be available and accessible to all who need it. May we reach out to others with the love of Jesus.

We pray for ……. in the name of Jesus. Amen
