God of life, help us ever to remember that Jesus’ journey to the cross was to save a world in need.
When you call us to take up our cross, you invite us into that mission.
Give us ready hands and hearts filled with compassion that we are always ready to serve those in need. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
Thanks to Rev. Joanna Miller (Zion Lutheran Church & St. James Lutheran Church in Philipsburg, ON & Baden, ON) for contributing this week’s prayer.
