Wednesday: Pray like Jesus
“At about three Jesus cried out with a loud shout, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani,” which means, “My God, my God, why have you left me?” Matthew 27:46, Common English Bible (CEB)
When Jesus was on the cross, he prayed the noon prayer for Jews (Psalm 22). This is because he prayed the offices, or the set prayers, of the Jews. This was one way that his practices shaped even his dying.
Use this website to pray the offices today. What effect does praying these prayers have on you?
