Father, my heart always aches on this day for the suffering your son endured on the cross. I know why he had to die. You love us so much that you sent him to die on that cross so we can be forgiven and saved from death. I believe that Jesus sacrificed his life for mine and today, although I am sad, I am also very grateful. Lord, thank you for saving me. Please take my life which has been purchased with the blood of your precious son and use it to honor his name.
