In his daily prayer for this morning Scotty Smith prays for those who are suffering physically and spiritually.
As I read his prayer, I am reminded of my brother-in-law, Gary, who has suffered with back pain for so many years. He is looking at still another surgery this week.
So I pray,
jesus, show your compassion on Gary. He has been your servant for these many years while suffering pain that I can't even imagine. May your mercy, compassion, and grace rain down on his life this very day. Lord, take the pain away!
I pray this in the name of the one who suffered, bled and died for our sins and restoration back to you Mighty and sovereign God.
