A Prayer for Wednesday, August 15, 2012


We all hurt, O God; we all have our pains, our sorrows, and our griefs.

We praise you that Jesus loved us and empathized with us so much that he took our hurts upon himself and carried them all the way to his cross.

Give us grace and strength, O God, so that we as followers of Jesus will love and empathize so much with others that we will be willing to take their hurts upon ourselves.

Help us, in other words, to take up our cross and follow Jesus.
