Prayer: Take Up Your Cross


We are loved by our God,
yet we often love poorly.
Show us the way, Lord.
 
You have made us your sisters and brothers,
yet we often ignore the crosses
of our sisters and brothers
in God’s human family.
Show us the way, Lord.
 
Although you accept us as we are,
we often do not accept others or ourselves.
Show us the way, Lord.
 
You have showered upon us life’s blessings,
yet we often refuse to help the needy.
Show us the way, Lord.
 
Dear God, give us a new perspective.
Help us look at the world
through the eyes of Jesus the Christ,
and be truly willing to take up
our crosses and follow him.
Amen.
