Prayer

Rejoice and weep

Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep (Romans 12:15; NRSV).

God […] comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God (2 Corinthians 1:3-4; NIV).

In all their suffering he also suffered (Isaiah 63:9; NLT).

God made human beings in his own image (Genesis 9:6; NLT).

Lord God,
If we are to rejoice
With all those who rejoice,

And weep
With those who weep,

Then this must be
How you relate to us,

For you made us
In your image.
