Day 34 – Scripture and Prayer for Lent

And as they were eating, he took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to them, and said, “Take; this is my body.”  And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, and they all drank of it. And he said to them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.Mark 14:22-25

Lord, Your blood was poured out for many.  Your blood was poured out for the crowds who celebrated You on Palm Sunday. Your blood was poured out for the money changers who defiled Your Father’s House. Your blood was poured out for the Pharisees and Sadducces who opposed You during holy week. Your blood was poured out for Your followers who would be scattered. Your blood was poured out for Judas who would betray You. Your blood was poured out for Peter who would deny You. Your blood was poured our for the Temple Guards who arrested You. Your blood was poured out for Chaiphas  and Annais who turned Your over to Pilate. Your blood was poured out  for the crowds who cried “crucify him”. Your blood was poured out for Pilate  who sentanced You. Your blood was poured out for the soldiers who crucified You. Your blood was poured out for the mockers who surrounded You. Your blood was poured out for the thieves to Your left and right of You. Your blood was poured out for the Centurion who rammed a spear into Your side.  Your blood was poured out for many. So many. I am so thankful that there was one more it was poured out for -Your blood was poured out for  me. Amen
