“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” Ephesians 3:17b-18
Father, Bless all of those who are struggling right now in their lives with things that are difficult. Strengthen those who are weak today, and give them a song in their heart which will be their strength. Thank you for your forgiveness and mercy! In Jesus’ mighty Name, Amen.
Jesus Wept (John 11:35).
Yes, Jesus wept. The Bible tells us he cried with loud cries and tears in prayer (Hebrews 5:7). He wept over his beloved city, Jerusalem (Matthew 23:37). One of his most famous and strengthening teachings is found in the famous Beatitudes. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted” (Matthew 5:4).
May the loving-kindness and compassion of Jesus Christ be yours today and always.
