Prayer

You share and understand

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

Even though Jesus was God’s Son, he learned obedience from the things he suffered (Hebrews 5:8; NLT).

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

So also Jesus suffered and died outside the city gates (Hebrews 13:12; NLT).

For we do not have a great high priest who is unable to empathise with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are (Hebrews 4:15; NLT).

…………………………………………………………………………………….

 

Lord,
May it comfort us
To know that
You’ve been tempted,

And that you share,
And understand,
Our human trials.

May it comfort us
To know that
You have suffered,

And that you share,
And understand,
Our human pain.
