I pray for the little boy who fell over and banged his knee today, tears and screams of pain followed by weeping blood, I pray that a smile returns, so that he can play and enjoy himself once again.
I pray for the old lady, weighed down with shopping bags, back hunched in discomfort, face aching from years of toil, I pray that she finds comfort from her aching bones, I pray that she can once again, remember and laugh about her life when she looks back.
I pray for the man sat at home, weeping in his hands, trembling with fright, his mind tortured with the news that he has cancer, I pray that the light Of God enters his mind, so that he can find solace amongst his untold pain.
I pray for the young women who has just put down the phone, her mind blank and startled, like a rabbit in headlights, she has just heard the news that her husband has died overseas, fighting in the army to protect his country. Fighting against a country, that never declared war against his own. I pray that in the days and months to come that she remembers the man she fell in love with, that she remembers times of joy, instead of this moment of sorrow.
I pray for the leader of an unknown country, who just ordered his army to attack civilians protesting against him, an army not knowing if they are helping or hindering their own people. I pray the leader of this country is able to see right from wrong, I pray that he sees that only peace will free his people, as well as his own mind.
I pray for all the lost souls sobbing or sitting in silence tonight, lost because they do not know which way to go next, a life of pain has sapped their ability to choose the right direction for themselves. I pray that they see the light of God, and all those reading these words see the same light, so that once again, each and every one of us can be free of pain, suppression and discomfort.
