There are so many broken hearts these days. There’s so much anger, pain, and sorrow. Where can you find strength again?
The strong, fierce heart is not a hard heart of stone. Instead, it’s open and ready to give. To love. True fierceness in the Lord follows the example of Jesus Christ. And those who have been given much, will love much. Those who have tasted God’s abundant grace will not be afraid. Stand firm and look forward to the coming dawn.

I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.Ezekiel 36:26
PRAYER FOR A FIERCE HEART
O merciful Lord,
I’m struggling right now. I hurt inside, but I can’t stop. Life moves on. Many depend on me. What happens if I crumble? What happens if I fail?
Your promises are eternal, O Lord. Sometimes with my head I don’t get it. I get scared. But my heart knows full well as the heart cannot deny a love so pure as the love of my Lord.
With you, I know I’ll move ahead. Sometimes I’ll stumble, even fall. But you’ll fill in the gaps. You’ll lift me up off the floor and give me rest in the sacred wounds of Christ.
Beyond my faults & fragility, give me a fierce heart, O Lord. A heart broken open long ago to let you in. A heart that clings to you with all it’s might. Never letting go of hope. Never giving up on love.
I pray for this, trusting in you,
in Jesus name,
