Heartfelt Prayer for Caregivers ... and those they love

Treasured friend,

It was nearly a year ago that I penned this closing prayer to my devotional booklet, Comforting Words for Caregivers. Tonight, thinking of all our family has been through in these ensuing months -- and the way God has indeed proven His name as "the God of all comfort" -- I pray this for you right now.

Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. (Isaiah 40:1)

God of all comfort,
I carry to You in this moment, each reader and each loved one who is battling illness and discouragement. I ask that Your compassionate arms will wrap around them. May they feel the sustaining grace of Your nearness in every moment of their trial.
May You guard, guide, and light their steps. May You build them up in the faith and in the sweet knowledge of You. And may the sure future of eternity with You provide them with supernatural strength to face each tomorrow to come.
As Paul prayed for the Ephesians, I ask that this trial will drive their roots deeper into Your glorious love, where they will find in You every resource they need to press on toward the high calling of Your presence forever.
I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

If this comfort is what you need, visit our ministry website and order your own autographed copy of Comforting Words for Caregivers ... and those they love. We'd love to get it out to you right away.

Many blessings and prayers, Julie
