Lent calendar for families for 1 April

Man seated with back to us, facing the sea.

The Lord is close to the broken-hearted.

“The Lord is close to the broken-hearted” 

Psalm 33:19

God is close to those who are feeling sad, grieving or in pain.

Think of the “broken-hearted” people in the world. Perhaps people you know or people in our global family suffering because of conflict or hunger.


Offer a prayer for the comfort and consolation of all those you came to your mind

You could use these words or your own:

God of compassion,
we pray for all those who are suffering or sad.
We think especially of ...(name those known to your family)
Comfort all those in need and mend their broken hearts
Help us to know how we can best help them
and show them your love.
In Jesus’ name,
