Morning Prayer

Dear Father in heaven, as your Son chose to suffer and die for the sins of the world, help us to understand that suffering is part of our lives as we walk with Jesus each day. Fill us with your Holy Spirit that we will boldly reach out to others who need to see Jesus in the midst of their suffering, their fear, their loneliness and disappointment. Fill us with the confidence of your love that as we face these days we are assured that you are with us, sharing in our pain and our sorrow. We pray, in the holy name of Jesus our Savior. Ame
