Praying through My Pain

Aug 2, 2021
Praying through pain


Emotional and physical pain are parts of life, but that doesn’t mean they're easy to endure. Sometimes prayer is the best medicine.


Dear God,
the pain I feel
clouds my thoughts
and brings me low.
Help me to feel your grace
when I can feel only pain.
Be my light so that I might find

a way out of my suffering.


What can we offerbeyond our prayersto those who are suffering? Sometimes a hot meal, a visit, or a phone call can lift the spirits of a suffering person.
