A Prayer Of Thanks For The Cross

Father, we’re grateful for Jesus who provided the answer for the sin problem for all time. Without the cross, there would be no redemption; no forgiveness for our sins; no hope for this life or the next; no sin-free eternity for the redeemed. That which was man’s greatest problem had no earthly fix, but You sent Jesus to be born in a hallowed manger to be the solution to our desperate condition. To those who have accepted Jesus as their Savior, it is a joyous walk. The weight of sin is lifted and the shield of salvation empowers us for Jesus is our Master. But to those who reject Jesus, the weight of sin continues to dominate their lives and enslave them to the schemes of Satan who is their master. We lift high the banner of the cross of Jesus as we walk in His resurrected power, and it is also in His name that we pray. Amen.
