Struggling to keep going? In Christ you have the strength

I'm grateful to Catherine Davies of the Northumbria Community, for bringing this beautiful prayer to my attention. It's a great reminder that in Christ we have the strength to do all that he has called us to:

Christ has many tasks for us.

Some are easy; others are difficult.

Some bring honour; others bring reproach.

Some are to our liking, and coincide

with our own inclinations, and are

in our immediate best interest;

some are just the opposite.

In some we may please Christ

and please ourselves;

in others we cannot please Christ

except by denying ourselves.

Yet the power to take on all of these

is most definitely given us in Jesus;

for it is He who strengthens us,

and comes to help us when we are weak.

  1. Please can you enlarge the font? Some of us are visually-challenged. Thanks.

  2. Hi Marilyn,

    Blogger has not been behaving very well for me and is doing strange things recently with fonts, layouts etc. Now I've managed to enlarge the prayer but the other text won't enlarge. Am thinking that Blogger is hormonal!

    Thanks for letting me know.

  3. Thankyou - just the prayer that I needed to hear right now

  4. Thanks for trying - it's a LITTLE better but still not easy!
