2 Corinthians 1:5 (NIV)
For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.
Merciful Father, can you hear our groans? Bring us comfort. Give us strength as we approach your cross. Help us lift our heads, feel the comfort of your arms and your shudder as you weep with us. Thank you Lord Jesus. Amen!
