Abundance for a Lonely Son
Abundance for a Lonely Son 40 Days of Mercy Devotional – Lent 2012 – Day 14
Jesus, Friend of a lonely heart, You are my haven, You are my peace. You are my salvation, You are my sovereignty in moments of struggle and amidst an ocean of doubt…You are everything to a lonely soul. (247) Who is weak and I do not feel weak? Who is led into sin and I do not inwardly burn? St. Paul (2 Corinthians 11:29)
Father, we too are weak. At times we are subject to desires that deride us, and a loneliness that only You fully understand. Would You draw near to us in as we seek and serve You today? We have become dutiful in our gratitude to You. Remind us of Your Mercy for us. And for all the elder sons and daughters who have wandered, bring them back into the Heart of Your Mercy. Give us new sight into their suffering. Grant us Your heart for them today.
