Comforting God, your Son Jesus offered to carry our heavy burdens and give us rest.
Give us the faith to lay our burdens upon him.
Inspire us and lead us to help others shoulder their burdens as well, that your love and care would be shown through our actions.
We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord. Amen
Thanks to Rev. Thomas Arth of First Lutheran, Port Colborne, for contributing this week’s prayer.
