"How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Christ have to suffer and these things and then enter into his glory?" - Luke 24:25-26
Dear Jesus, don't let me be slow of heart to believe that what you did in your single solitary life was the fulfillment of all that the Old Testament prophets had foretold as well as the answer to all of my fears and sorrows. You suffered to win for me freedom from my guilt, freedom from my fear of death, freedom from my inability to forgive others. Melt my stony heart and replace it with your powerful love fulfilled by your very life. Give me what I cannot produce on my own, faith, hope and love. Make me the person you always intended for me to be. AMEN
"Christ in us is the hope of glory."
