There is a lot of hurt in this world today.
Hurt in our hearts.
Hurt in our families.
Hurt with our friends.
Hurt in our schools.
Hurt in our workplaces.
Hurt in our churches.
Hurt in our community.
Hurt in our state.
Hurt in our country.
Hurt in our world.

But there is one common hurt that occurred that can heal us all.  The hurt that Jesus went through to save us.  He lived as a person just like you and me walking this earth only to be rejected, lied about, stabbed, made fun of, laughed at, beaten and killed.  However, the story doesn’t end there.  He arose from the dead and is alive today.  He took the punishment for all of us and if we just say thank you and accept Him, we can have an eternity of peace that breaks all strongholds of hurt and pain.  We still have to endure pain and suffering on this earth but He will be with us to help us through it and give us hope for eternal peace.

Let us all pray together today for God to heal the hurt in our lives and our world because He tells us:  “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Can you imagine what could happen if we all stop what we are doing and just spent a few minutes in prayer for all the hurt in the world?  Don’t blame anyone.  Don’t point fingers.  Don’t make fun of people or things.  Don’t get angry.  Just pray.  Pray for everyone and for all the hurt.

Be on the lookout to see what God is doing right now in our world – both in our little corner and across the globe!  He’s working…just keep praying!

Raise a hand and bow a head if you’re with me!  🙂
