A very kind friend of this page named David posted this today, and asked that I might share it. He said that his heart is aching for everyone who needs transformation in their lives right now, and he asked that we might join in a group prayer toward wishing them well.

Honestly, the simple kindness of this request brought tears to my eyes.

So let's do it.

Let us offer a collective prayer of love this morning for all who are stuck, heartbroken, afraid and lost.

May your turnaround come to you, as it has come to so many of us who have been there.

Pastor Rob Bell describes "despair" as the belief that tomorrow is going to be exactly the same as today.

May you lose that belief, and may it be replaced with a conviction that your future does not necessarily have to look like your past — in fact, your future can be a radically transformed universe. Many of us can attest to that reality — myself included.

You're still here. You're still breathing. If you woke up this morning, you have a second chance. Same thing goes for tomorrow…and onward, and onward.

Hang in there.

May God bless you,
