Almighty God, your Son our Savior suffered at human hands and endured the shame of the cross. He gave his life so that all might come to know you. Grant that we may walk in the way of the cross each day and find in that walk a way of peace and love that comes through the giving of our lives to serve others in Jesus name. Grant that our love may grow stronger each day in the midst of any and all trials that come our way. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
