A Prayer Prompted by the Crucifixion in Luke 23

Lord Jesus,

We thank you for enduring the cross in our place so that our sins can be forgiven.  We thank you for humbling yourself beyond anything we can imagine for our sake.  Teach us now to live for you and teach us to live like you did, to the glory of the Father and for the benefit of others.

Help us to love even as you did, even to the point of death. And help us to forgive those who sin against us, even as we have been forgiven.

We want to be like you, Lord Jesus.

Amen
