The Daily Prayer
WEDNESDAY, July 29, 2020
Listen to these words of Martin Luther King Jr.: “Truth crushed to earth will rise again. How long? Not long! Because no lie can live forever. How long? Not long! Truth forever on the scaffold, wrong forever on the throne. Yet that scaffold sways the future and behind the dim unknown standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch over his own. How long? Not long! Because the arc of the mortal universe is long but it bends toward justice.”
Lord, raise us up as servants who are willing to bear one another’s burdens. Surround us with others who will help make the burdens lighter. And help us rest in the assurance that you will not put more on our shoulders than we are able to carry. We ask this through Christ Jesus, our Lord, who both told us to take up our cross and had help carrying his own. Amen.
