Thanksgiving for the Cross

This is a poetic prayer about how the crucifixion affects my life.

Dear Jesus--

Because of the cross,
you understand pain;
you can erase suffering--
your healing I'll gain.

Because of the cross,
you can understand sin;
your gift of forgiveness
will grant peace within.

Because of the cross,
you drew your last breath;
in becoming mortal,
you freed us from death.

Because of the cross,
my debt has been paid;
no longer I'm guilty
a daughter you've made.

Because of the cross,
I have access to you;
you hear all my prayers,
you make dreams come true.

Because of the cross,
I will live saved and free;
no longer I'll struggle with
whom I should be.

Because of the cross,
I'm changed every day;
I live life with purpose,
for you've shown me the way.

Amen
