The Lord said to me, I am taking you into My school for the whole of Lent. I want to teach you how to suffer. I answered, “With You, Lord, I am ready for everything.” And I heard a voice, You are allowed to drink from the cup from which I drink. I give you that exclusive privilege today … (Diary,1626).

My Prayer Response:

Jesus, be my teacher on how to suffer, so I might teach others. I know that we all suffer, but so much of the suffering of the whole world is wasted! May I drink from the cup from which You drank, Lord.
