My prayer to Jesus

Dear Jesus,
I thank you for dying on the cross for me. Thank you for healing the sick and blessing the poor and lonely. May you forgive my sins and thank you for teaching me how to pray and be like you. Also I thank you for proclaiming your good news. Thank you for sharing your virtues with us so I may be able to show them in our own way.
You walked the 14 steps without no complaint and anger by carrying the heavy cross on your shoulders.
