Prayer #73: Giddy Up/Down

Lord, carry our unpredictable hearts close to Your chest, so their proximity to each other and to You unifies their beating and shows them they are not alone.

Mend the broken ones. Heal the wounded ones. Empower the timid ones. Steady the fluttering ones. Reassure the worried ones. Enlighten the confused ones. Sustain the hopeful ones.

In this way, may You make these organs vital to our holiness, and us vital to the world.

Amen.
