Dearest Jesus, I need to talk to you. I have experienced an unhappy incident. What has given me some comfort is that you never promised us a rose garden. Life is difficult at times. Jesus, be with everyone who has experienced unhappiness. Perhaps a death or someone whose heart is hurting from a bad experience. Jesus, wrap your arms around the sick. May they have a better day tomorrow. Be with each of us. I know you love us. Prayer is powerful. You are with us always. In your name I pray. Amen.
