Prayer for March 27

Prayer for March 27: Please pray with me. God who never gives up, today we pray for all those who have given up – given up on trying, given up on family, given up on a job, given up on hope, given up on relationships, given up life.  Send your Spirit to all who have given up, sit with them in their despair, send us to be with those who have given up – not to convince them to keep plugging away or pull themselves up by their bootstraps.  Rather, send us to be present, to listen, to offer a tender touch and a warm word, so that all who have given up know that they are not alone in the world, that they will not be alone, and they we will stay with them in their time of despair.  Amen.
