Lord, in this time of trouble let us remember to carry each other’s burdens.
Let us gather the spiritual poor and the outcasts into your care. Help us love you with all our might, and treat our neighbors as our self even when they are very different from us.
Also help us understand the meaning of your scriptures. We want to walk on your path; some words points one way, but words also points the opposite way. Let us hold our hands together and submit to our Lord’s will. For we all have fallen short.
Help us carry others’ pains. Let us take the bitter cup if it will ease the pain of others. Help us run a good race in this life. Cleanse us with your radiant light. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
