Holy Week Prayers-Holy Monday

Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to His own advantage; rather, He made Himself nothing by taking on the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to death-even death on a cross.” (Phil. 2:6-8)

Holy God,

We do not only want to walk with you in the good times,
the times when the masses bow before you and yell “Holy, Holy, Holy’
But we also desire to have the strength,
strength which only comes from you,
to journey with you to the cross.

The suffering you took on yourself for the sake of the world
the humiliation,
the pain,
the loneliness,
the betrayal,
the abandonment,
is hard to imagine.

Give us courage to hold on to our crosses this week,
in solidarity with you,
in solidarity with broken people,
in solidarity with your suffering creation.
