(Adapted from Isaiah 53:5-6)
“I thank you Lord whenever I recall that it was you who was pierced for our transgressions, and you were crushed for our iniquities;
I’m overwhelmed by the fact that the punishment that brought us peace was placed upon you, and by your wounds we are healed.
We do not deserve such love from you, because we all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and Almighty God has laid upon you the iniquity of us all.
With gratitude I gladly bless you this morning for such amazing grace that has set us free! Amen.”- JSP
