Prayer

Suffering

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

Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine (Luke 22:42; NLT).

He was in such agony of spirit that his sweat fell to the ground like great drops of blood (Luke 22:44; NLT).

The Lord – who is the Spirit – makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image (2 Corinthians 3:18; NLT).

 

Lord,
Please help me
To face suffering
Of every kind,
By learning to live
And die with it –
Like you.
