We appeal to you on behalf of persons, places, and situations that have not made the headlines.
We ask for your mercy to pour out continuously for good in these circumstances.
We ask that your presence be felt and known in clear and tangible ways.
This is more than a plea for the forgotten, but a full-throated request for those who have been directly passed over, passed by, or passed through.
You know them. You see them. You love them.
May the wholeness and peace that can only come from you radiate in their lives,
bringing hope and joy.
