Son of Humankind,
Your friend Lazarus died, and you wept. The raw ache of grief tugged at your heart.
You know what it feels like to mourn. You also know what it’s like to rise again.
Console us in our times of despair.
In our darkest days, help us to always live and believe in you,
so that we may enjoy everlasting life with you in heaven.
We pray in your holy name,
Join Seeing the Word this Lenten season as we take a prayerful look into the ministry of Jesus Christ through the lens of The Saint John’s Bible. The weekly posts will feature either a prayer or reflection paired with an illumination. All content was written by Jessie Bazan, M.Div. candidate.
