BREATHE: Calm your head, heart, and hands as you slowly breathe in . . . and out.

READ: John 19:14-30

WONDER: What do you wonder about Jesus dying on the cross? How does this story make you feel?

PRAY: Draw a simple cross. Practice holding up the cross and having everyone say, “Thank you, Jesus.” Hold it up after each sentence in this prayer, saying the response together: Dear Jesus, you are our Lord. Thank you, Jesus! You came to earth for us. Thank you, Jesus! You lived for us. Thank you, Jesus! You suffered for us. Thank you, Jesus! You died for us. Thank you, Jesus! 6 You love us. Thank you, Jesus! Amen
