Prayer

Suffering

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

Enjoy prosperity while you can, but when hard times strike, realise that both come from God. Remember that nothing is certain in this life (Ecclesiastes 7:14; NLT).

Shall I not drink from the cup of suffering the Father has given me? (John 18:11; NLT).

 

Lord,
At some time in our lives
We must all drink
From the cup of suffering
You give us,

And how we deal with this
Depends on our relationship
With you.
