A Prayer for Monday, April 8, 2013

Ninth Day of Easter

O God,

We thank you that one of the ways that the disciples knew that the resurrected Jesus was in fact Jesus was by the still visible wounds in his hands and side.

Help us to remember that living in the power of the resurrection and walking in newness of life does not mean that we will not receive and bear wounds; help us to remember that in fact faithfulness to Christ that shows itself through love, mercy, grace, peace, and forgiveness will likely invite wounds into our lives.

Cause us to be willing to bear those wounds for the sake of Christ and for the sake of others.
