Shared Prayers

Today, among my friends, there seems to be a particular need for prayers. Friends fighting cancer, friends having major surgery, friends waiting while loved ones have major surgery, friends trying to make sense of a high-school senior and recent homecoming king’s suicide.

I take comfort in the prayers they post on Facebook, souls bared in their moments of vulnerability. I’m touched by the love that flows from hearts through the “cloud” to other hearts.  It’s a virtual praying aloud, hoping others join in your supplications.

I am particular moved by one prayer today, imbued with love, hope and forgiveness. A friend not only prays for comfort for the family who has lost their teenage son, but for the teenager himself. She prays that he has found the peace he sought.
