Prayer for the Afflicted

Vietnam MemorialBy Stephen W. Hiemstra

Almighty Father,

All praise and honor be to you for you hear our cries for mercy and have compassion on those who suffer affliction.

Forgive us for we seldom do either being wrapped up in our own worries and often turn a deaf ear to the suffering of others.

We thank you for the hedge of protection that you offer us through faith and the love you show to sinners who do not know you.

In the power of your Holy Spirit, stay your hand in punishing those that sin repeatedly and do not attend to your commandments. Lift them gently from the recompense of their sin and show them another path. May sin not destroy their lives, their hopes, and the their opportunities, but may their pain turns their eyes to you that they might find a saving faith.

In the precious name of Jesus, your son and our savior. Amen.
