I have had a hard time connecting with this tragedy. I first saw it and tried to ignore it and I intentionally did not read this string. So many people (military and civilians) are having such a time of it lately. I guess I was just trying to keep my head in the sand.
Father God, I am sorry that I have been unable to focus on this tragedy. I ask that the families and friends of these miners who have died will feel your Fatherly presence in their lives. I know that you are there with these good people. Father, please help each of see how much we have (instead of what we lack) and what a gift each minute of our lives are. Thanks you for allowing us to come before you and seek your love and assurance. In Jesus name. Amen
