Thank you for your love, grace and mercy. I pray that the discomforts of your children in Boston will turn to comforts, their pains into gains for You; their deprivation to more blessings, their losses to profits, their tears to smiles, their sorrows to pleasures, their illness to wellness, their debts to credits and their dreams to realities.
Lord, their bodies were damaged but they as humans were not broken. You have given them an amazing resilient spirit and You have made their stories touch the lives of millions of people; You have made them the faces of hope for a broken world. As the scriptures say “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” And he “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”
