1 – Jesus is condemned
Have I ever been condemned, treated unfairly, or been blamed?
Have my words been used through gossip to condemn or blame others?
Alone, abandoned and betrayed, do I strike out in anger and hold grudges?
Am I willing to stand defenseless, unwilling to harm, and able to forgive?
Help me to stand in calmness and patience because my faith is so strong I know the final outcome.
Let us pray:
Lord, thank you for blessing me with your amazing grace and love, and offering me access to deep wisdom and surprising inner strength. You present me with self-control and fearlessness. Here I am Lord, welcoming, embracing and embodying your gifts, filled with profound gratitude.
