Heart-cries fraught with tears for:

first responders in Haiti and Afghanistan,

firefighters in Greece, Turkey, Israel, and America,

victims living with chronic pain and illness,

 military, police, and law enforcement,

patients stung by the virus, despite vaccinations,

  addicts of whatever substance,

the grieving,

the destitute,

the terminally ill,

the dying,

Such are our brothers and sisters of the human family throughout our broken world.

We ask Your protection and care with complete abandon.
