My boss just told me that he had to attend his nephew's funeral. He was 5 years old and killed in a horrible accident, by a family member, who backed over him. Please pray for this family; that God's grace and healing can make the days ahead less painful. In times like these, it is hard to see God'd grace, but we know it is there.

My heart hurts as I continue to grieve my former relationship. Each prayer, Scripture, counsel from God-fearing friends/family/advisers, & the Holy Spirit within me tells me "Do not give up on this man! Pray for him without ceasing and you two will be restored!" - and even though I love that message, it is so difficult to cling to when all I feel is hurt and fear. I haven't seen anything concrete that would lead me to believe my ex will come back, so I need prayers for stronger faith. I am committed to God's will, and that's what I want to be done and on HIS time, but it's painful to wait. Please ask the Lord to equip me with all that I need to get through this time. Please also ask the Lord to work in my ex and heal/correct anything that needs healing/correcting. I know many are cynical in regards to God's calling in relationships - but I can truly say this is not a deceitful heart moment. I've heard God tell me "no" many times throughout my life and I've fought Him tooth and nail to get "my way" (hasn't worked, by the way), but I've ALWAYS known when He says "no." This is different. I trust if the Lord wants me to go another way, He will tell me - so I ask that while you're kindly praying to simply ask God to give me total assurance and holy confirmation in His path for me. Thank you!
