After the casserole dishes go home

Oh, my Father, today I pray for all my friends who are grieving, whose grief extends far beyond the time when all the casserole dishes have been returned.

Please make me loving, caring and sensitive enough to keep on remembering and being present. You alone know of whom I speak AND for whom I pray today. Please be the healer of broken hearts today and tomorrow and all the tomorrows to come. In Jesus’ name. Amen
