Prayer: Who do you say that I am?

Here’s a prayer inspired by Jesus’ question in Mark 8:29.  It comes from the Christian Aid website.

‘Who do you say I am?’

Lord Jesus, 
You are a Lord who walks beside your people. 
So we pray for people who walk for justice.

You are a Lord who raises up those who are bent low. 
So we pray for those held down by the grindings of life 
and the indifference of the world.

You are a Lord who feeds the hungry 
So we pray for all who long for bread 
And the means to provide it.

You are a Lord who celebrates the small and the insignificant. 
So we pray for the children 
And for those who are never noticed.

You are a Lord who says ‘Follow me’. 
So we pray for courage and faith in our hearts 
That we may take up the cross and find it leads to life.
