A Prayer Prompted by John 12:27-28

27 “Now is my soul troubled. And what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? But for this purpose I have come to this hour. 28 Father, glorify your name.” Then a voice came from heaven: “I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again.”

Lord Jesus,

We can easily imagine why your soul would have been troubled just prior to going to the cross. The pain, the suffering, the taking of punishment for sin that you never deserved, would have been more than any of us could have handled.

And yet willingly you bore the physical agony, the psychological torment, the guilt that was truly ours. We thank you that you saw this was the very purpose of your coming. We thank you that you saw glory rather than shame in following through with this plan.

And we bow in reverent worship to the Father who glorified his name once and again.

May we never lose sight of the cross and all that it means for our salvation.

To God be the glory great things he has done.

Amen.
