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.
