Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness,
so must the Human One be lifted up,
that whoever believes in them may have eternal life.
—John 3. 14-15
Lifted up—made visible, so all can see and be healed.
Christ, you heal me,
and I give you thanks.
Lifted up—praised, adored, held up as a model.
Christ, I turn to you,
that I may follow.
Lifted up—on a cross: condemned, tortured, executed.
Christ, confess I am part of your suffering.
May I be part of your healing.
Lifted up—raised from the dead.
Christ, through your death and resurrection
lead me to new life.
