A Prayer to Jesus for Solace

As we enter into Holy Week I offer you this prayer as something you can say and reflect on. We do enter into Holy Week in a very different way this year but nothing can separate us from the love of Christ.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, “For thy sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:35-39

Lord, I believe that nothing can separate me from Your love. I entrust myself this day to You. 

Jesus, may I never forget that when the world is cold and dark, and I don’t know where to turn for comfort, that you are always there with me. If I am tempted to despair, when feeling abandoned or alone, whisper to my soul that I have one friend Who never abandons.

If sorrow begins to weigh me down and crush me, if I look in vain for comfort, let me be reminded of Your words, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Jesus, help me this day to remember the happiness that comes from life with You. O Lord, at The Last Supper, You prayed that we be one even as You are one with the Father. In the new life You have won for us we become one with You; You who knows everything that is in our hearts. 

You know my joys, my sorrows, anxieties, and fears; You know everything that is going on in me. Lord help me to find solace this day, that the love You have for me on the Cross, is a love that reaches me here today.
