God, my heart aches, today.
My heart aches for those feeling anger. For those feeling fear. For those feeling hunger, who cannot eat. For those feeling loss.
My heart aches for those whose bodies are cold. For those whose eyes are sightless. For those whose touch is dismissed, rejected.
My heart aches for the confused, the bewildered, the misled. For the arrogant and defiant. For the abused, and neglected.
My heart aches for the weary, the sacrificed, the exhausted. For the sick, and dying. For those who cannot save them.
Lord, take this ache, and generate action in line with your Will.
Make me an instrument of Thy Peace.
