|Adoration of the Cross|
Prayer of the Week on the Sunday of the Cross
O Lord, we falter under the crosses You have placed upon us. Give us the strength to bare them as You bore Your cross. By doing so You give us the gift of our own resurrection. May our suffering bring us closer to You and open up our hearts for Your dwelling. We pray in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
Bible Verse: “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?
