Prayer Request

Then Pilate took Jesus and had him flogged. The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head. They clothed him in a purple robe and went up to him again and again, saying, "Hail, king of the Jews!" And they struck him in the face (John 19:1-3).

Luke states that Pilate had Jesus flogged. But that does not even for one second describe the vicious beaten that Jesus took. He was tied to a whipping post and a professional scourger beat Him within inches of His life with a whip that apparently had pieces of metal and bone woven into it. Then they punched Him in His face until His eyes and cheeks were so swollen that He could barely see. All to purchase our healing as per Isaiah the prophet. Then He was led away carrying His own cross only to have nails driven into His hands and feet and then hung there until He died, to purchase our salvation. Oh what such great salvation that has been lavished upon us. When we are rejected He knows how it feels. When we are mocked or spat upon for our faith, remember that He experienced it first. That is why He is our High Priest who is touched by our infirmities. Praise the LORD, thank you Jesus.

O LORD our God, thank you for sending Your only Son to die in order to give us life. Thank You Jesus for Your obedience and selflessness. I am so sorry for the times I have failed You. Please forgive my transgressions and help me to be a better person and to live for You, not turning to the right or to the left, but to keep my eyes steadfast upon You, always remembering Your Cross. Thank You for Your forgiveness and Your salvation, in Jesus name I pray, amen.
