Careful What You Pray For

Even though it has been out for over 10 years now, I’ve only just watched The Passion of the Christ for the first time.

It is a great film, but difficult to watch. The depiction of Jesus being brutalised and killed was awful, but I can’t help but wonder that the real thing was even worse than this.

When I prayed that night, I asked the Lord if I could help to carry the cross that Jesus was forced to carry.

When I woke up in the morning, I felt awful. My neck and down the right-hand side of my body was aching. The Lord answered my prayer! God is good and what I felt was just a small proportion of what Jesus had to endure. It was good to be able to experience it though.
