Dear God, You sent Jesus to show us how much you love people, He forgave the friends who ran away, He forgave the people who hurt him;
Thank you for your love. Thank you for your forgiveness.
Thanks be to you, our Lord Jesus Christ,
for all the benefits which you have given us,
for all the pains and insults which you have borne for us.
"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble." (Psalm 46:1, NIV)
