Dear God

Working on the welcome table for the hospital chaplaincy team I’m there for whatever is needed. The other day three young ladies approached me in a tearful state. They told me that their mother was in ITU. They wanted to write a prayer to God but didn’t know how to begin. I suggested that ‘Dear God’ might be a good way. As one lady started to write I explained to the others they could say another prayer in the quietness of their own home. I told them that God loved them and wanted to hear from them. There was no reply but I do believe they listened.

I was such a privilege to be able to share God’s love with them.
