Another Prayer

I find myself in meditative prayer again today. As I drive, I have a lot of time to think, pray, or listen to the radio. As I was praying, a group of individuals I know came to mind who have fragile and rigid traits. It's easy to become impatient with their rigidity, easy to hurt their feelings with a careless remark, and hard to make them feel at ease.

Lord, give strength to your fragile and rigid children. Give them comfort and reassurance. Give them wisdom. Make them whole again. As I pray, I see their faces. Sometimes I say their names and sometimes I don't. Bless them. Help me strengthen and comfort them. Help your church minister to them.

Matthew 12:20 - A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.


  1. Dan - what a gift you are. One of the things I have realized is that those who are sometimes "fragile and rigid" as you say, have not the slightest clue that someone like you is interceding on their behalf with the Almighty. What a gift you are - thank you for giving me a reminder.


  2. Thank you, Danny, for keeping me on track.


  3. Hi Danny, I recently saw the movie, WIT, with Emma Thompson and gained a new interest in John
    Donne. Today I was reading his Holy Sonnets and they're wonderful. Look him up. I think Sam might enjoy his work as well. Mom
