Dear God, I'm reminded today of that frailty of life. When we see tragedies beyond human control (like the Tsunami), horrors (like humans under the wrong control, killing their own children), and people dying from cancer and car wrecks, that reality is really brought home.
I pray that in the days I have on this earth, you would give me the strength to stand firm. Let nothing move me from the tasks and purpose you have for me. Give me the desire to always give myself fully to your work, and remind me that my labor is not in vain (1 Corinthians 15:58).
And I pray for peace, comfort, and direction for those whose lives are changed by the frailty of life. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.
