Praying through the tears…

Asking our Sovereign-Shepherd to comfort the brokenhearted… and also, to heal both the injured and bereaved…

“Jesus wept,” ~John  11:35

“‘For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I myself will search for my sheep and look after them. As a shepherd looks after his scattered flock when he is with them, so will I look after my sheep. I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on a day of clouds and darkness,” ~ Ezekiel 34:11-12

“The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit,” ~Psalm 34:18

“But you, O God, do see trouble and grief; You consider it to take it in hand.  The victim commits himself to you…”  ~Psalm 10:14

” For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses…Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need,” ~ Hebrews 4:15a, 16

“I am still confident of this:  I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.  Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD,” ~Psalm 27:13-14
