“Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do……..”
Luke 23:34 kjv
Oh, Lord, bring it on.
Bring us to the day when we shall never again bear this devastation.
Let us witness your final triumph over Satan and his forces of ungodly evil.
Wipe from the face of your earth the heartache, the tears and the pain.
Love us when we feel we’ve been emptied of love and forgiveness.
Strengthen us when our immense sorrow leaves us lifeless.
Fill us with your hope when we have nothing to fight our despair.
Show us how to forgive when we don’t want to forgive.
Grant us mercy when we desire vengeance.
“Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive others.”
There is only one place to go for understanding.
His cross on Calvary is where sin and death were defeated.
Only there shall we find that which will comfort us.
“O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?”
1 Corinthians 15:55 kjv
