John 19:31New International Version (NIV)
31 Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jewish leaders did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down.
Dear Father, Have mercy on me, a sinner. Forgive me for my sins. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
