Men ought always to pray, and not to faint.

jesus_on_crossLord Jesus, I want to thank YOU for Your willingness to be broken and poured out for me. The whips, the thorns, the nails and the spear pierced Your precious body and from these painful wounds, Your life blood was poured out for our transgressions. We will never know the crushing agony; the weight of our sin and shame upon Your back. Thank YOU Jesus for your perfect life and atoning death. I admire Your courage and strength. I worship YOU as the Son of God. I glory in your righteousness: I am thrilled when you are praised. Thank YOU for loving sinners. I am a vile man, totally depraved: I have nothing to offer except my love, devotion and gratitude. I just want to thank YOU one more time for dying in my place.
