A Prayer for Friends in Pain


This one’s for all my friends
battling their own darkness –
Mental, emotional,
physical, relational,
or even financial turmoil.
Pain is pain, God.
And all of it hurts.
It’s useless to compare who’s got it worse.
Because whatever we’re suffering,
we’ve all been brought low.
We don’t know why you let us suffer
the things You could so easily take away.
Could you please go a little easy on us today?
We’re all longing for some rest.
And we’re hoping to find it in You this time.
