Prayer based on Matthew 23:4. Themes: Oppression, Hypocrisy.

Dear Lord, we come before you with heavy burdens that are grievous to be borne. We pray that you will lift these burdens from our shoulders and give us the strength to carry on. We ask that you help us to bear the weight of our struggles and guide us towards a brighter future. We also pray for those who bind heavy burdens on others but refuse to help them. May they see the error of their ways and extend a helping hand to those in need. We trust in your love and mercy, and we thank you for always being there for us. Amen.

Verse: For they bind heavy burdens that are grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not lift a finger to help them.
Matthew 23:4

This is a Command. The verse is warning against burdening others without offering help.
