As Your preachers stand before Your people to preach Your Word on Sunday, we do so with the realization that many of Your people will be hurting. We know that sitting in those pews there will be people with broken hearts, broken homes, broken lives, and broken spirits.
Help us, Dear God, to remember that the best thing we can do for those who are broken is to bring comfort, peace, concern, understanding, and love, through Your Word. Father, we know that some of these men will do their best to preach Your peace through their own tears and their own pain. Please fill their hearts and their minds with the knowledge that You will not forsake them. Please give them a special measure of Your comfort as they minister to the lives of those who are broken. In the Name of the One who mends all broken hearts, we pray, Amen.
