Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…
As we think about all that this weekend represents, help us to gain new insights and learn new spiritual truths…may we see things with fresh eyes and an open heart. We pray that by the time Sunday comes we will find your joy and peace overflowing in our hearts with a renewed sense of hope and purpose. We pray that just as you rose from the grave and threw off the wrappings that bound you, may we rise up and throw off the things that bind us…
Many here are feeling the pressing weight of numbness, grief, despair and hopelessness. Some feel like everything they’ve known and all that was familiar, has disappeared…everything has changed or is on the verge of change in their lives and they don’t know where to start to pick up the pieces… some feel as though they have lost their sense of purpose and life no longer has any meaning…they question everything, including why they are still here…please help them to remember how hopeless things looked when Jesus died and how everything changed in a matter of days. If you can take the cross and all it’s ugliness…if you can bring new life, new meaning, new callings, new hope, restoration and salvation from that horrific, hopeless situation, you can redeem all the enemy meant for harm in our lives as well. Nothing is too hard for you. You still have the last word in all things. No one can stop your plans or what you have ordained.
Help us to remember when we feel discouraged that our own “Resurrection Day” will come one day and we will trade the corruptible things of this life for the incorruptible…our resurrected bodies will be forever free from pain, sorrow, illness, death, sin and tears…as great as those things are and as much as we look forward to those things, the greater gift is one day we will be with you and know the fullness of your joy and peace and be one with you. Our minds can’t begin to conceive of the joy that is coming and all you’ve prepared for us…but we can imagine the joy your followers must have felt when they saw you were resurrected… and that is just a taste of the joy that is coming…everything we go through in this life can’t begin to compare to what awaits those who believe. We love you Jesus. We praise you and thank you. Amen
May your day be richly blessed!
