Day 34

A Prayer For Christlike Living

"Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ."

Galatians 6:2

Heavenly Father,

Blessed are You who daily carries our burdens. You sent Your Son Jesus Christ to bear the weight and the burden of our sins on the cross of Calvary. By His shed blood, death and resurrection, we are free from the weight of sin and death, guilt and shame. Lord Jesus, You now invite us to abide in You and stay connected to Your life-giving nourishment through Your abiding presence, Your living Word, and the indwelling Holy Spirit. Help us grow daily in grace, humility, compassion and gentleness, so that we might bear the burdens of others and so fulfill the law of love in Christ. Holy Spirit, enable us to strengthen the weak, encourage the downcast, relieve the afflicted, comfort the grieving, pray for the oppressed, and be Your vessels of healing to the hurting. Teach us what it means to come to the aid of Your image in all Your children in their time of need. We ask this in the name of Jesus, the Christ. Amen.
