Today’s prayer links back to yesterday’s. Whilst the previous one was about sharing the sufferings of Christ, today’s focuses on sharing the sufferings of others.
Life brings suffering
May we bear it, learn from it,
In empathy and love,
So we can share
The suffering of all,
And show we care.
Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).
When your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow (James 1:3; NLT).
Mourn with those who mourn (Romans 12:15; NRSV).
In all their suffering he also suffered (Isaiah 63:9; NLT).
