Jesus… did You ever wonder…? (a prayer)

Jesus… did You ever wonder… if You were heard…?
speaking to hundreds… thousands…
from a boat… on a mount…
children bounding… people sleeping… chatting…

Did You ever wonder if it made a difference…?
Did You ever doubt Your calling…?

I’d have to say… Yes… since You were tempted… tried… in all things…

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize
with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect
has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.
Hebrews 4:15 ESV
On the cross… did You think it all a waste…?

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, sayng,
“Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is “My God, My God,
why have you forsaken me?”
Matthew 27:46 ESV
I find comfort… encouragement… knowing You struggled with doubt…

I find the Way to resist discouragement… just as You did…
running to Your Father… daily…

And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark,
he departed and went out to a desolate place,
and there he prayed.
Mark 1:35 ESV

Thank You for showing the Way…
