Praying Tears

"Prayer is the way to both the heart of God and the heart of the world - precisely because they have joined through the suffering of Jesus Christ...Praying is letting one's own heart become the place where the tears of God's children merge and become tears of hope."
--Henri Nouwen, from "Love in a Fearful Land"

One of the first things we learn about prayer when we are children is to pray for others...  Pray for the hurts of the world, pray for the lost, pray for the lonely... 

Who has prayed for you?  Who will you pray for this week?
