Prayer based on Matthew 27:32. Themes: Sacrifice, Service, Compulsion.
Dear Lord, as I come out into the world today, I pray that you would guide my steps and lead me in the path of righteousness. Just as Simon of Cyrene was compelled to carry the cross of Jesus, I pray that you would give me the strength and courage to carry my own cross. Help me to bear the burdens of life with grace and humility, knowing that you are always with me. May I be a willing servant, ready to do your will and follow your commands. Thank you for your love and mercy, and for the sacrifice of your Son on the cross. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
