And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.” (Matthew 26:26)
Jesus, thank you for breaking into my life and for being broken for me on the cross.
Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” (Matthew 26:27-28 )
Jesus, thank you for pouring out your life blood for me on the cross.
Praying The Nicene Creed
whose kingdom shall have no end.
Thank you, Jesus, for your endurance to the end on the cross. Thank you for establishing an eternal kingdom. Jesus, please give us by the power of your Holy Spirit that same endurance so that we may persevere until the end.

Subject: Daily quote
The convicted in the Norwegian attacks, Anders Behring Breivik (91 people killed) or “the suspect” JH from Aurora in the movie theatre (12 killed,59 wounded), Hitler (millions) Cain, (1) etc. etc. the list is endless.
How can we possibly comprehend mans inhumanity to man?
Why is man-kind so unkind sometimes?
How do we pray Lord, how do we pray?
Into your hands we commend those who have died…
Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on us.
We need you Lord, when are you coming back to sort us out?
Oh Lord hear our cry…
