I pray for my brothers and sisters, who live daily with HIV and AIDS, I ask that You be the lifter of their bowed down heads. That You will be their strength when they are weakened by the weight of their burden, and remind them that You are still a burden bearer.
I pray that You will restore to them the joy of their salvation, knowing that You have called them by their names and they belong to You, and that they are precious in Your sight.
Grant my sisters and brothers the peace of God that surpasses all human comprehension, knowing that You are Love and have chosen to lavish Your great love on each of them.
Speak to those have chosen to live in isolation and suffer depression and give them the confidence to live every day with intention.
Help us all to be mindful that each day is a gift, and as long as we have breath we can be used as instruments in Your hands in service to one another. Thank you for daily giving us the assurance of Your new mercies.
In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
