Prayer for Wednesday (Holy Cross Day)

No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
~ John 3:13-17 [NKJV]

Lord Jesus,
by loving to the extent
that you were wounded,
we are healed.
By loving to the point of death
and by rising from the dead
you have set us free.
You remind us
that it is when we are weak
that we can be strong
because of your love
and the power of your Spirit.
Enable us
to take up our cross each day,
share the burdens of others,
and follow you faithfully.
Amen.
