Dying with him on the cross – v2

Praying for Abba
our Father’s suffering
in the dying of the Son
the Lamb of God, descended
to the earth, the cross, to the grave

Praying for Abba
crying out with Him
the suffering of our Master
sacrificing our Brother
to redeem us from the lost

Praying for Abba
for the pain we have caused Him
to heal our sin, our death
to raise us with Him
dying with Him on the cross

“Praying for Abba”
Genesis 22:1-19
Abraham faithful in sacrificing
his first born son Isaac,
God providing substitute lamb;
Christ becoming the sacrificial lamb
with no substitution;
the pain of the Father on Good Friday
when his son died for us.
Hebrews 10:1-14
Christ was the one priest able to make
one sacrifice for all time
John 11:32-44
John 11:35
“Jesus wept” for his friend Lazarus,
though he knew he would rise
Jeremiah 31:15
Rachel crying for her children
who are no more
