Worthy is the Lamb who was sacrificed.

Jesus, I place myself beside you as you shed tears over Jerusalem—the city of your own people, the city so terribly destroyed. Like John, I want to weep bitterly because that scene has been repeated so often in our human history, so often in my own life.

I do need someone to open the scroll, to read the meaning of my life with its hopes, and its disappointments, to bring me to recognise the opportunities God offers. Bring me to turn to you in any perplexity or doubt, in my success and calm. Because I am precious to you, show me how to live today, faithfully understanding the message of your peace in all the occasions and people that make up life, my opportunity.
