Only you know what is in every human heart. 1 Kings 8:39

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and through grace gave us eternal comfort and good hope, comfort your hearts and strengthen them in every good work and word. 2 Thessalonians 2:16–17

We open our hearts to you, dearest Friend; purify them with the refiner’s fire, tenderize them with awareness of the needs of others, and stimulate them so that we may reach out in compassion to answer the calls of our neighbors’ distress. Amen.
