Sunday Sharing: A Prayer For Those With Heavy Hearts

Last week was one of sadness for many people I know.  Several people I attend a Bible study with at church are going difficult family situations and I learned about five deaths of family members or pets of friends, co-workers of mine and blogging buddies.  

On Tuesday, I began reading the book of Galatians and the first thing in Chapter 1 is a prayer that I prayed for those I know going through hard times or times of grief over their loss of loved ones.  I thought it was just what they need so I'd like to share it with you.  (Replace "you" with whomever you wish and pray this for those you know.)

I pray that God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ will be kind to you and will bless you with peace. --Galatians 1:3
This is how Paul opened his letter to the Galatians.  Later on, he called them stupid but I'll let you read that for yourself in chapter 3.

I'd love to hear what scripture highlight you came across this week and hope you will experience God's kindness and peace in your life this week!

This is mine--------
Matthew 6:31-33
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat?
or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:)
for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;
and all these things shall be added unto you.

Life is filled with so many wonderful things, and then at times it's filled with such pain.

Have a blessed day Karen. Scritches to all the babies. :)

I just have to say, leading from a wonderful prayer of Paul's to pointing out that he calls them stupid is quite interesting! Made me laugh. And you are right! ;)

Paul's letters are so challenging yet comforting at the same time. He had to have been an amazing person to meet and talk to.

There are so many hurting people right now, thanks for sharing such a beautiful verse, Karen.
