I have been thinking today about something.
I wonder what the world and our lives would look like if we all consistently prayed the prayer, "Lord break my heart for what breaks yours."
Would we spend less time and less energy pursuing our own comfort?
Would we pray more?
Would we complain less and act more?
Would we respond to stories on the news with responsive action instead of just entertainment?
Would our homes be full of children who weren't born to us?
Would we spend our money or our time differently?
There was a story on the news this morning about a 10 month old who died from burns inflicted on him by his parents. If we prayed the prayer, "break our heart for what breaks yours", would we respond to stories like this with more than just a head shake?
Oh Lord please break my heart for what breaks yours!
