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.



  1. How I wish that God would actually help me...

    1. He will, if you run to Him. Psalm 147 says:
      1 Praise the Lord!
      For it is good to sing praises to our God;
      for kit is pleasant, and a song of praise is fitting.
      2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem;
      he gathers the outcasts of Israel.
      3 He heals the brokenhearted
      and binds up their wounds.
      4 He determines the number of the stars;
      he gives to all of them their names.
      5 Great is our Lord, and abundant in power;
      his understanding is beyond measure.
      6 The Lord lifts up the humble;
      he casts the wicked to the ground.
      7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving;
      make melody to our God on the lyre!
      8 He covers the heavens with clouds;
      he prepares rain for the earth;
      he makes grass grow on the hills.
      9 He gives to the beasts their food,
      and to the young ravens that cry.
      10 His delight is not in the strength of the horse,
      nor his pleasure in the legs of a man,
      11 but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him,
      in those who hope in his steadfast love.
      12 Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem!
      Praise your God, O Zion!
      13 For he strengthens the bars of your gates;
      he blesses your children within you.
      14 He makes peace in your borders;
      he fills you with the finest of the wheat.
      15 He sends out his command to the earth;
      his word runs swiftly.
      16 He gives snow like wool;
      he scatters frost like ashes.
      17 He hurls down his crystals of mice like crumbs;
      who can stand before his cold?
      18 He sends out his word, and melts them;
      he makes his wind blow and the waters flow.
      19 He declares his word to Jacob,
      his statutes and rules to Israel.
      20 He has not dealt thus with any other nation;
      they do not know his rules.
      Praise the Lord!
