In light of the day’s reading, pause to reflect on the specific areas you long to see made new and how Jesus’s ministry calls us to join in that restoration. Let these shape your prayers today.
Jesus met pain, tears, and suffering with compassion, empathy, and relational and physical healing. So we respond to those in distress with dignity, compassion, and empathy, lamenting with those who grieve and honoring those who suffer toward the promised end, when God will comfort His people.
After you’ve read, spend some time in prayer about your call to reflect Christ’s comfort and healing toward others. Comment/share with the community anything that stood out to you or encouraged you from the reading or your time in prayer.
