Daily Scripture Prayers of Thanksgiving, Part 22

Jesus fell with His face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me. Yet not as I will, but as You will.” (Matthew 26:39)

The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many. (Mark 10:45)

While Jesus was eating His last Passover meal with His disci- ples, He took bread, blessed it, and broke it, and gave it to His disciples, saying, “Take it; this is My body.” Then He took the cup, and when He had given thanks He gave it to them, and they all drank from it. And He said to them, “This is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.” (Mark 14:22-24)

In Gethsemane, Jesus prayed, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for You; take this cup from Me. Yet not what I will, but what You will.” (Mark 14:36)

During His trials, some began to spit at Jesus and blindfold Him and strike Him with their fists and say to Him, “Prophesy!” And the guards received Him with slaps in the face. The soldiers put a purple robe on Him, then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on Him. And they began to call out to Him, “Hail, king of the Jews!” Again and again they struck Him on the head with a staff and spit on Him, and bending their knees, they paid mock homage to Him. When they crucified Him, those who passed by hurled insults at Him, wagging their heads and saying, “Ha! You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, save Yourself and come down from the cross!” And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice,”Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” which means, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Mark 14:65; 15:17-19, 29-30, 34)
