When up against the most difficult, the most painful trial anyone could face,
He didn’t flinch or avoid or complain.
He obeyed.
He moved forward through it,
walking with You even when You felt a world away.

O merciful Father,
I am weak.
I am needy.
I am inconsistent in thought and word and action.
How constantly I need the mind and Spirit of Jesus Christ!
Teach me to pray!
