O God who was present when Jesus surrendered,

you know how hard it is for us to consider it...

to consider Jesus breathing his last breath on the cross.

But despite this difficulty, we know, O God,

that you endure it with us.

You're no stranger to suffering or grief.

“When Jesus had received the wine, he said, ‘It is finished.’ 

Then he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.” John 19:30 NRSV

“Then Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, ‘Father, into your 

hands I commend my spirit.’ Having said this, he breathed 

his last.” Luke 23:46 NRSV
