Responding to Those Who Suffer

Lessons from Job when tragedy strikes

Be still and know that they’re in pain.
Don’t try to find some cause or blame.
Just listen to their hurting heart
and be a friend to them.

Be still and know they want your care.
They need your presence more than prayer.
Just knowing you will hear their heart
means all the world to them.

Be still and know you give them hope.
Your quiet presence helps them cope.
You give them strength to carry-on.
You are God’s gift to them.
