The Hero of Our Stories

Lord Jesus,

What is it about your story

That lasts through the ages?

You weren’t the rich prince.

You didn’t get the girl.

You didn’t solve the mystery.

You didn’t incite rebellion.

You didn’t go on a quest.

You didn’t kill the monster.

Yet you were rich in God’s love,

You got all of humankind.

You solved the mystery of life.

You created a personal way to God

Through Your sacrifice.

You incited peace amongst peoples.

You quested for fishers of men,

You killed the monster of Death.

Lord Jesus, You are the light of the world,

And the hero of our stories.

Amen.
