Prayer for Matthew 27:29

“They twisted together a crown of thorns, put it on His head, and placed a reed in His right hand. And they knelt down before Him and mocked Him: "Hail, King of the Jews!"”

Praying through Matthew 27:29

Heavenly Father, my heart grieves within me when I think of Jesus being mocked, spat upon, and tortured before His death on the Cross. To imagine my precious Saviour in this state, willingly allowing them to treat Him this way, gives me a glimpse of His unfathomable love for me. Thank You, Father, that You gave Your only begotten Son to take the punishment that I deserve, dying on the Cross to pay the price for my sin, and thank You that He rose the third day so that by faith in Him I may be made the righteousness of God. May I never become so familiar with the horror of Christ’s suffering and death that I forget that it was the terrible consequences of my sin that caused Jesus to stretch out His arms of love for me on Calvary's Cross. Lord, I thank You, and I love You, AMEN.
