Day 10 + 40 Days of Mercy + + +

“If we are absolutely grounded in the absolute love of God that protects us from nothing even as it sustains us in all things, then we can face all things with courage and tenderness and touch the hurting places in others and in ourselves with love.”

Day 7 + 40 Days of Mercy + + +

Divine Tenderness,
Keeper of All Hearts,
May we know the sweetness
of Your Love.

Touch grieving hearts
with Your comfort and strength.

Mend broken hearts
with Your inexhaustible Grace.

Invite abandoned hearts
into Your Household of Belonging.

Fill empty hearts
with newborn warmth and hope.

Smile on joyful hearts
with Your gleam of Knowing Light.

Divine Tenderness,
with delicate care,
You have spread Your mantle
of purest blue,
encompassing sun,
moon, stars, and all
Your fragile children.

Draw us, in gentleness
and beauty to Yourself.
Renew us like the Spring!
Cover us, call to us,
sing our secret names…

until every heart is Home.
