He Heals the Brokenhearted — Praying for Manchester


In light of the Manchester terrorist attack on Monday, I’m not posting my regular blog today. Instead, I’ll be praying. For the people affected, for the hatred and brokenness and loss and fear and confusion and courage and hope that is swirling in so many hearts and minds.

If so inclined, please join me.

Take the time you would have spent reading my blog, and pray for the city and people of Manchester, pray for our world, pray for our leaders, and pray for countries and pray for the many wounded hearts.

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. [ps. 147:3]





About Nadine Brandes

Nadine Brandes is an adventurer, fusing authentic faith with bold imagination. She never received her Hogwarts letter, but rest assured she’s no Muggle (and would have been in Ravenclaw House, thank you very much.) This Harry Potter super-nerd has been known to eat an entire package of Oreos (family size) by herself, and watches Fiddler on the Roof at least once a year. She writes about brave living, finding purpose, and other worlds soaked in imagination. Her dystopian trilogy (The Out of Time Series) challenged her to pursue shalom, which is now her favorite word (followed closely by bumbershoot.) When Nadine’s not taste-testing a new chai or editing fantasy novels, she and her knight-in-shining armor (nickname: “hubby”) are out pursuing adventures.
