Perhaps the hardest thing is to watch someone we love in pain, Loving God. Please help them when they are struggling to somehow find your presence when they feel as if you are not there. May we be that essence of your spirit when they cannot see you. Help them to know that they are not alone and that they are loved. Surprise them at this time with your obvious care for them when they least expect it. Allow us the gift of the right thing to say during this time for them and the knowledge of when to simply listen. Bless them with knowledge of your love for them this and every day. Amen.
