Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life. (Proverbs 13:12 ESV)
Надежда, долго не сбывающаяся, томит сердце, а исполнившееся желание–как древо жизни. (Притчи 13:12 Russian)
Almighty God, thank you dear heavenly Father for this new day that arrives with some good and some bad news. Give your children special wisdom to sort out the good from the bad and to make the most of all situations. Awaken within the hearts of the hopeless that you love them and desire the best for every human being. Help those who have fallen off the deep-end, to have a clear mind along with the realization that they are ultimately responsible for their behavior and must suffer the consequences. Give patience and wisdom to those who suffer because their loved ones are addicted to alcohol or drugs. In the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
