Prayer

Sharing

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).

If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine (Matthew 26:39; NLT).

Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows (Isaiah 53:4; ESV).

 

Lord,
Whatever hardships
I experience –

Pain, distress,
Anxiety, or fear –

I don’t ask you
To take them all away.

Instead, help me to face them
Unreservedly,

Sharing each experience
With you.
