May we have no burden to carry because, though we have a burden, we have rolled it upon the Lord.  May we take up our cross, may our cross become a comfort to us,  May we count it all joy when we fall into various trials, knowing that in all this God will be glorified, His image will be stamped on us, and the eternal purpose will be fulfilled, in which He predestined us “to be conformed to the image of His Son” (Romans 8:29).

Lord, look upon Your people.  We could pray about pour troubles, but we will not do so now.  We will only pray against our sins.  We could come to You about our weariness, about our sickness, about our disappointment, about our poverty, but we will leave all that for now. We will only come to you about sin. Lord, make us holy, and then do what You will with us.
