Prayer, suffering, life, courage, help, bear, illness, mental, physical,

Just think!

Just think
How Jesus’ life

Might have turned out
If God had intervened.

Just think of all
We sinners would have lost!

Lord, may our lives
Be just the same as yours –

Facing whatever happens
With God’s help,

Rather than wanting him
To end our pain.

**********************************

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

God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16; NIV).

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

Though I walk in the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me (Psalm 23:4; KJV).

I was given a thorn in my flesh […] Three times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:7-9; NLT).
