Stand up and praise the Lord your God!
(Nehemiah 9:5; NLT).
Stand up to fear and panic,
Depression, hurt and loss,
To loneliness and anguish
With Christ, who faced the cross.
Stand up to pain and sickness,
Exhaustion, grief and stress,
To suffering and sorrow
With Christ, who shares each test.
Stand up to hate and envy,
Temptation, pride and sin,
To selfishness and anger
With Christ, who waits within.
Stand up to them with Jesus,
Confront them every day,
Then you will gain your freedom
With Christ, who is our way.
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6; NLT).
*This prayer can be sung to the tune of “Stand up, stand up for Jesus.”
