Dear Father, lifter of our heavy loads,
Fill my heart with love for my brothers and sisters in Christ. If someone is overtaken in some misdeed, help me to assist in restoring that person, in a spirit of gentleness. Let me watch out for myself, lest I also be tempted.
Help all of us to bear one another’s overloads, and so fulfil the law of Christ. But help us not to deceive ourselves, thinking we are something when we are really nothing.
Let each one of us test our own work, so that our reason for pride may be in what we do and not in what our neighbor does. Teach each of us to bear our own fair load.
May we who are taught share all our good things with the person who teaches us.
In the name of Jesus I ask all this and that you will give me a Spirit-filled life resulting in eternal victory! Amen.
