Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

a prayer to follow the example of the cross

Dearest Lord Jesus

You could have called for angelic help.
But you didn't fight your torturers.

You could have defended yourself.
But you didn't respond to accusations.

Like a lamb led to slaughter.
You yielded your life on the cross.

Grant us grace and courage.
That we might follow your example.

Grant us humility and meekness.
That we might be silent when we are criticized.

Fill us with mercy and compassion.
That we might forgive those who hurt us.

Empower us Dear Holy Spirit.
That we might bear suffering like Jesus did.

In the name of the Servant King, we say amen.
