Thursday April 13th Matthew 27 : 34-37
They offered Jesus wine to drink, mixed with gall, but when he tasted it, he would not drink it. And when they had crucified him, they divided his clothes among themselves by casting lots; then they sat down there and kept watch over him. Over his head they put the charge against him, which read, "This is Jesus, the King of the Jews".
Were you there in dark Gethsemane?
Sleeping friends, agonising Saviour, betrayal.
Father, we are sorry, forgive our lack of stickability,
Our spirit is willing, but our flesh is weak.
Our vision of your kingdom becomes clouded by rules and red tape.
We let you down so badly when the going gets tough.
Father, forgive us and teach us the victory of endurance.

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Mocking crowd, darkened skies, faithful few.
We confess that we deny and crucify you afresh each day;
By the sin we harbour in our lives, the burden of our doubts;
The pain of cruel words, our lack of faith, love and forgiveness.
We are sorry, Father, forgive us and teach us
How to love unconditionally, as you love us.
Father, hear our prayer and let our cry come unto thee!
