Lent 5 Topical Prayer

Topical Prayer: God it is so hard to hear what you had to endure in order to save us. We want to be like the disciples and dismiss it. But over and over again you show us that you want to save everyone. The blind begged who is sitting at the side of the road, the short and smarmy tax collector Zacchaeus, and us. Help us to grasp the facts that Jesus, as the Son of Man, was handed over to the government to be mocked, insulted, spat upon and flogged. And that he will then be killed. And the third day he will rise again. Give us ears to hear this to be true, we pray. Amen.
