Almighty God -Thank you for sending Your precious Son, Jesus, to carry the cross to save me from sin. In going down to death, He and I were raised up to live beyond earthly years. In living my life of faith and service to You, may I see my life and the living of it as carrying the cross Jesus carried for me. As in the story of Christ may I see that in Your grace, all dark times in my life are ways to find and see Your healing light and love. May my every loss be transformed into spiritual gain. May my suffering be the path to joy and peace which passes all understanding.
May the story of my life be read by You as a tribute to Your Son’s story. In carrying the cross may I find the way to Heaven here and now on earth and not sit idly by waiting for everlasting life and Your eternal love after my death. Amen
