Day 37 of the 40 Days of Prayer, 1 Day of Celebrations

Monday, March 26, Day 37 of the 40 Days of Prayer, 1 Day of Celebration: The 2018 prayer focus in preparation of our worship of Christ for His death for our sins and the celebration for His resurrection that gives us eternal life.

Verses of the Day:
Luke 23:44-49 It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour, because the sun was obscured; and the veil of the temple was torn in two. And Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit.” Having said this, He breathed His last. Now when the centurion saw what had happened, he began praising God, saying, “Certainly this man was innocent.” And all the crowds who came together for this spectacle, when they observed what had happened, began to return, beating their breasts. And all His acquaintances and the women who accompanied Him from Galilee were standing at a distance, seeing these things.

Prayer for the Day:
Thank You Lord Jesus for Your gracious sacrifice for me, Your life in exchange for mine.

Day 36 of the 40 Days of Prayer, 1 Day of Celebrations

Sunday, March 25, Day 36 of the 40 Days of Prayer, 1 Day of Celebration: The 2018 prayer focus in preparation of our worship of Christ for His death for our sins and the celebration for His resurrection that gives us eternal life.

Verses of the Day:
Luke 23:39-43 One of the criminals who were hanged there was hurling abuse at Him, saying, “Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself and us!” But the other answered, and rebuking him said, “Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed are suffering justly, for we are receiving what we deserve for our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.” And he was saying, “Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!” And He said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”

Prayer for the Day:
Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom.  Remember me just as You promised this criminal.  By faith in Your perfect, sinless life and by faith in Your death on my behalf, bring me safely into Your eternal kingdom.  Through the power of Your resurrection, bring me to everlasting life.  Amen.

Day 35 of the 40 Days of Prayer, 1 Day of Celebrations

Saturday, March 24, Day 35 of the 40 Days of Prayer, 1 Day of Celebration: The 2018 prayer focus in preparation of our worship of Christ for His death for our sins and the celebration for His resurrection that gives us eternal life.

Verses of the Day:
Luke 23:32-38 Two others also, who were criminals, were being led away to be put to death with Him. When they came to the place called The Skull, there they crucified Him and the criminals, one on the right and the other on the left. But Jesus was saying, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” And the people stood by, looking on. And even the rulers were sneering at Him, saying, “He saved others; let Him save Himself if this is the Christ of God, His Chosen One.” The soldiers also mocked Him, coming up to Him, offering Him sour wine, and saying, “If You are the King of the Jews, save Yourself!”  Now there was also an inscription above Him, “THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.”

Prayer for the Day:
Lord, You displayed a heart of forgiveness for Your enemies.  “While being reviled, You did not revile in return.” (I Peter 3:23)  Crucified as a common criminal, though You are the Son of God, the Creator of the very wood to which they nailed You.  You were crucified on a cross of wood, even though You created the very hill on which it stood.  You are my Savior.
