Moment Of Vulnerability: A Prayer For The Shattered


Today I pray for all of the abused and broken souls of this world. So many more people than we know have been hurt by others to almost beyond repair. I see them, hear their stories, and feel their pain until... I just want to cry and plead to You to save them. Just save them. Save them from the memories, issues, their abusers, and wrap them in Your loving arms.

Most people don't just wake up one morning and decide they want to be gay or abuse others or commit suicide. There's always a reason and it is because they have no hope that they eventually resort to these things. So many broken people.... It's overwhelming. I know it is nothing You have done and instead it is because we live in a fallen world that has been given over to its passions.

I wish that You would protect all of these innocents, but no one is truly innocent- all are sinful beings rolling around in a mess of sin in a broken world. It is a miracle that anyone is saved from it. Thank You, Father, for saving the few.

Thank You for saving me from the vicious cycle. Yes, I know that I could become a victim of these sinful beings, but even if they hurt me, You have promised to protect my soul and help me through it. Now I pray that You will bring other broken beings into that protection and use me as You will to bring that about. I just pray that I will be strong enough.
