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

This chapter, in which Jesus institutes the Lord’s Supper shows us four important things.  They are Judas’s betrayal, Peter’s denial, Christ’s prayer and Christ’s covenant.

A Sinner’s Prayer Prompted by the Last Passover in Luke 22

Dear God and heavenly Father,

I know that I am a sinner and that I need your forgiveness. I confess that there is nothing that I can do to save myself.  I admit my complete inability to work my way to heaven or to somehow be good enough to be saved.  Instead, I trust Christ and Christ alone as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross.

I believe that I can come to you directly on the basis of Christ’s shed blood and in so doing not have to face your holy judgment.  I believe that Christ was raised from the dead and I take this as a guarantee of my own resurrection.  Help me now to live completely for you.

Please fill me with your Holy Spirit so that I might walk in newness of life.  And help me to carry out your will each and every day until I meet you face to face.

In Christ,

Amen
