I implore You, let me not be a Christian in name only nor a mere spectator of Your
of Your Body, let my life reflect Your image.
I place myself in Your hands so that You can imprint upon me the traits of the
Lamb. Help me to endure willingly all that people do to me. May I remain silent
when I am unjustly accused. Teach me to bless those who curse me and those who
hate and persecute me. I will humble myself be­neath scorn and disgrace and
patiently bear every cross that conies to me. I know they come from Your hands.
People are just Your instruments.
myself alone, but may let Christ live in me. You are the Lamb of God, who endured
all things in love. Come into my heart anew as I meditate upon Your passion, and
imprint in me Your humility and love. As I use these meditations, help me to thank
You for the suffering that You endured because of my sin. Help me to show You my
love and gratitude, not merely in words, but also in deeds.
My Lord Jesus
