Christian Suffering: Why and How Christians Are to Suffer

God Almighty, the crown of your creation has tried to hi-jack your sovereignty at the beginning of life, with respect to abortion, and now at the end of life, with physician-assisted suicide.  Mankind pretends to make an account for suffering by avoiding it.  Lord God, this is to reject your image in each of us, and to usurp your authority over us.  We seek now to work with the action of your Holy Spirit within us, which sometimes includes human suffering.  We submit to your sovereign authority over us, Lord, rejoicing in your kind comforts, your strong encouragements, and your disciplining chastisements, all a part of your sanctifying work in us to ‘fit us for heaven, to live with thee there’.  Amen & Amen.
