Praise the One Who Paid

My children and I always pray before they leave for school, well, usually I do the praying. Yesterday my little P spoke up as soon as I said “amen.”

P: “Mom, I want to pray.”

“Dear Jesus, I’m so sorry we killed you on the cross.”

I’m not sure how she put that all together, I hadn’t mentioned it in my prayer.

Praise & Paid. Today, especially, I remember these words. (Good Friday)

He didn’t have to pay.

Sometimes the words of my heart are already written.

“Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.”-Elvina M. Hall (1865)

“Oh praise the One who paid my debt and raised this life up from the dead.” -Kristian Stanfill

“Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done.” -Psalm 105:1
