Writer's Wednesday -- Lisa O. Engelhardt



Hang It On The Cross


If you have a secret sorrow,


a burden or a loss,


An aching need for healing...


Hang It On The Cross.


If worry steals your sleep


and makes you turn and toss,


If your heart is feeling heavy...


Hang It On The Cross.


Every obstacle to faith


or doubt you come across,


Every prayer unanswered...


Hang It On The Cross.


For Christ has borne


our brokenness


and dearly paid the cost


To turn our trials to triumpn...


Hanging On The Cross.


----Lisa O. Engelhardt

  • One of my favorite prayers...I bought a prayer card containing it in high school, and in the years since then I find myself constantly using it.
