Lord, we’re not perfect. On the outside we may appear to be but on the inside there are so many things. There are a lot of burdens in this room. We bring those burdens to You. The burdens of mistakes, regrets, hurt, hate and the heaviness of a broken heart. Help us to let go of these things of the past so that we can move forward to our future with You. Help us to bear and share each others’ burdens and fulfill Your word that “whatever we have learned or received or heard from Christ, or seen in Christ – put it into practice.“ We need to be more like You. We need to love unconditionally. We need to forgive endlessly. And we need to share the love of God to all people regardless of our differences. It is so easy to divide but You remind us that we are all united as children of God and we need to live as such. Use us Lord, use us this week to share Your love and good news. Until we meet again.

“Death, where is Your sting? And Hell where is Your Victory?” Because we have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer we who live, but Christ who lives in us; and the life, which we now live in… we live by faith in the Son of God, who loved us first and gave Himself for us so that we could be saved. This is the victory that has overcome the world— our faith. It is through our faith in Christ, that we know that we are not alone. It is through our faith that even in the darkest hours of this life, we have a God that will not let us go. It is through our faith that we have hope. So thank You for the Victory that You share with us. Thank You for the love that You give to us. And thank You for this gift of life. May we live this life knowing that God is always on our side and that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
