“The prayer of the righteous is powerful in what it can achieve.” James 5:16(CEB)
God, when we hear the daily news, it is easy to think that life is a valley of sorrows filled with tears. Remind us through the stories of survivors, that you are with us always and that your love for us never fails. We celebrate the times when heaven and earth meet – the times you break into our lives in ways that make us exclaim: If it had not been for the Lord who was on our side…! Thank you for a love that transcends calamity – a love that lifts up those who suffer, a love that frees the lips to rejoice. Amen.
