break the hearts

Dear Jesus, I know the odds. 183 children and a little over 3 weeks until I arrive to start getting them ready for school. Please bring in the sponsors for the children YOU want to be in school in January. Break the hearts of those that You want to sponsor them. And not just a little. Break them the way Yours is broken when Your children are overlooked. Help them to do something about it. Help us all to remember that as the body of Christ, this is our responsibility.

And here I am deep in prayer and in the background I hear this ridiculous news story about the people that went without power and running water on a cruise ship. What about the people in this world that are dying from hunger or preventable diseases? WHY DOESN'T THAT MAKE THE NEWS?
Lord, don't let us sit back and allow these children to be forgotten. Let us not be so consumed with the busyness of life. We need to hurt. So hurt us. Maybe then we will react. There needs to be the same sense of urgency when we remember these children as there was for that news story to be gathered and broadcast just now.
