Thank you, dear God, for bringing us to the end of another year. We do not take this for granted. Thank you for your goodness, mercies, for your unfailing & unending love. Sometimes things happen that just don’t make any sense to us. But we trust that even in the midst of our questions, you are still God. You love us more than anyone can, and more than we could even imagine. We are praying today for everyone all over the world who has been abused, oppressed, persecuted, tormented, and denied justice. It is beyond heart breaking and unimaginable that fellow human beings could be capable of such evil, such horror. We also pray for all those who have lost loved ones one way or another. Dear God, please heal every broken heart in Jesus name. AMEN
