Lord, thank you for comforting us that we
may comfort others. I pray that through our tears we may continually
offer you the sacrifice of praise, the fruit of our lips giving thanks
to your name; that we may keep our eyes on things eternal for we know
that although our hearts are torn with grief, our light affliction,
which is but for a moment, works for us a far and more exceeding
weight of glory; that we may compassionately reach out to those
you place in our path; that we may lift up the
name of Jesus and many be drawn to your saving grace and may you be
in our pain as your will is done on earth as it is in heaven.
We sow in tears. We shall reap in joy !!
