For Grace to Bear Suffering, a prayer based on Matthew 27

Summer in the Scriptures (12)

Jesus suffers injustice, mocking, torture, and death

I pray for the grace to bear my sufferings
as Christ bore his for me
With Dignity
Humility
Forgiveness

I pray for the grace to bear my sufferings
as Christ bore his for me
With Compassion
Truth
Perseverance

I pray for the grace to bear my sufferings
as Christ bore his for me
Knowing my sufferings are not like his
and not like others
yet shared with the universal longings of all humanity
Real and Painful and Deep
No need for comparison
Only companionship

I pray for the grace to bear my sufferings
as Christ bore his for me
Willing to suffer for a greater good
In solidarity and sacrificial love

I pray for the grace to bear my sufferings
as Christ bore his for me
As Christ bore his for all
All I will ever suffer
All we all will ever suffer
Will be made known
Will be made whole
Through his love and self-giving

In this, I believe
and trust
and follow
and hope
In this, I am made new
We are made new
Thanks be to God!
Amen!

Anointed Worship, a prayer based on Matthew 26

Summer in the Scriptures (11)

Based on Matthew 26:6-13, Jesus is anointed

Glorious One,
Heal our stingy, selfish ways
Silence our accusations
End the worship wars

Add your own confession

We remember the woman
Her actions
Her witness
Make us like her

Pour upon us, Holy Spirit
So we may worship you in Spirit and truth
Saturate us in the oil of gladness
So we may adore you with abandon
Draw us into intimacy and extravagance
Unashamed and alive with our offering

Add your own offering of praise and thanksgiving
