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).

I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? (Psalm 56:4; NLT).

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? (Mark 15:34; NLT).



In Gethsemane,
Christ begged you

To take away the suffering
He faced.

But you did not,
And he embraced your will.

So, may we face our suffering
With his courage,

Even when we, like him,
Feel you’ve forsaken us.
