<< Luke 22:44 >>



  • Lamentations 1:12
    Jerusalem also says,“ All you who are passing by, don’t you care about what has happened to me? Just look at my condition. Has anyone suffered the way I have? The Lord has brought all this on me. He has made me suffer. His anger has burned against me.
  • Psalms 22:12-21
    Many enemies are all around me. They are like strong bulls from the land of Bashan.They are like roaring lions that tear to pieces what they kill. They open their mouths wide to attack me.My strength is like water that is poured out on the ground. I feel as if my bones aren’t connected. My heart has turned to wax. It has melted away inside me.My mouth is dried up like a piece of broken pottery. My tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth. You bring me down to the edge of the grave.A group of sinful people has closed in on me. They are all around me like a pack of dogs. They have pierced my hands and my feet.Everyone can see all my bones right through my skin. People stare at me. They laugh when I suffer.They divide up my clothes among them. They cast lots for what I am wearing.Lord, don’t be so far away from me. You give me strength. Come quickly to help me.Save me from being killed by the sword. Save the only life I have. Save me from the power of those dogs.Save me from the mouths of those lions. Save me from the horns of those wild oxen.
  • Hebrews 5:7
    Jesus prayed while he lived on earth. He made his appeal with sincere cries and tears. He prayed to the God who could save him from death. God answered Jesus because he truly honored God.
  • Lamentations 3:53-56
    They tried to end my life by throwing me into a deep pit. They threw stones down at me.The water rose and covered my head. I thought I was going to die.Lord, I called out to you. I called out from the bottom of the pit.I prayed,“ Please don’t close your ears to my cry for help.” And you heard my appeal.
  • Romans 8:32
    God did not spare his own Son. He gave him up for us all. Then won’t he also freely give us everything else?
  • Psalms 143:6-7
    I spread out my hands to you in prayer. I’m thirsty for you, just as dry ground is thirsty for rain.Lord, answer me quickly. I’m growing weak. Don’t turn your face away from me, or I will be like those who go down into the grave.
  • Isaiah 53:10

  • Psalms 22:1-2
    My God, my God, why have you deserted me? Why do you seem so far away when I need you to save me? Why do you seem so far away that you can’t hear my groans?My God, I cry out in the daytime. But you don’t answer. I cry out at night. But you don’t let me sleep.
  • Psalms 69:14-18
    Save me from the trouble I’m in. It’s like slippery mud, so don’t let me sink in it. Save me from those who hate me. Save me from the deep water I’m in.Don’t let the floods cover me. Don’t let the deep water swallow me up. Don’t let the grave close its mouth over me.Lord, answer me because your love is so good. Turn to me because you are so kind.Don’t turn your face away from me. Answer me quickly. I’m in trouble.Come near and save me. Set me free from my enemies.
  • Jonah 2:2-3
    He said,“ When I was in trouble, I called out to the Lord. And he answered me. When I was deep in the place of the dead, I called out for help. And you listened to my cry.You threw me deep into the Mediterranean Sea. I was deep down in its waters. They were all around me. All your rolling waves were sweeping over me.
  • Genesis 32:24-28
    So Jacob was left alone. A man wrestled with him until morning.The man saw that he couldn’t win. So he touched the inside of Jacob’s hip. As Jacob wrestled with the man, Jacob’s hip was twisted.Then the man said,“ Let me go. It is morning.” But Jacob replied,“ I won’t let you go unless you bless me.”The man asked him,“ What is your name?”“ Jacob,” he answered.Then the man said,“ Your name will not be Jacob anymore. Instead, it will be Israel. You have wrestled with God and with people. And you have won.”
  • Psalms 88:1-18
    Lord, you are the God who saves me. Day and night I cry out to you.Please hear my prayer. Pay attention to my cry for help.I have so many troubles I’m about to die.People think my life is over. I’m like someone who doesn’t have any strength.People treat me as if I were dead. I’m like those who have been killed and are now in the grave. You don’t even remember them anymore. They are cut off from your care.It’s as if you have put me deep down in the grave. It’s as if you have put me in that deep, dark place.Your great anger lies heavy on me. All the waves of your anger have crashed over me.You have taken my closest friends away from me. You have made me sickening to them. I feel trapped and can’t escape.I’m crying so much I can’t see very well. Lord, I call out to you every day. I lift up my hands to you in prayer.Do you do wonderful things for those who are dead? Do their spirits rise up and praise you?Do those who are dead speak about your love? Do those who are in the grave tell how faithful you are?Are your wonderful deeds known in that dark place? Are your holy acts known in that land where the dead are forgotten?Lord, I cry out to you for help. In the morning I pray to you.Lord, why do you say no to me? Why do you turn your face away from me?I’ve been in pain ever since I was young. I’ve been close to death. You have made me suffer terrible things. I have lost all hope.Your great anger has swept over me. Your terrors have destroyed me.All day long they surround me like a flood. They have closed in all around me.You have taken my friends and neighbors away from me. Darkness is my closest friend.
  • John 12:27
    “ My soul is troubled. What should I say?‘ Father, keep me from having to go through with this’? No. This is the very reason I have come to this point in my life.
  • Psalms 40:1-3
    I was patient while I waited for the Lord. He turned to me and heard my cry for help.I was sliding down into the pit of death, and he pulled me out. He brought me up out of the mud and dirt. He set my feet on a rock. He gave me a firm place to stand on.He gave me a new song to sing. It is a hymn of praise to our God. Many people will see and have respect for the Lord. They will put their trust in him.
