Prayer for the Brokenhearted

Father, what do you do with Your broken down children?

"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." -Psalm 34:17-19

Oh Lord, run to us, save us. Help us not to stay in the place of broken and bitter! Restore us, make us whole, so we can be loving examples to others around us of what is possible when we allow Jesus into our lives.... -Amen

Prayer to Ponder

Father, as we prepare to dive into Christmas week, I ask that You help us to slow down. Lord, I don't want my family to remember how crazed mom was every Christmas. I want them to remember how special I made every moment. 

Just as Mary after the birth of Jesus, "kept all these things and pondered them in her heart," (Lk 2:19) Lord, I pray that we find the time to ponder as well.

Help us to slow down, enjoy time with our family and friends, and give us many moment to treasure. -In Jesus' name, Amen.
