Day 25 of the 40 Days of Prayer, 1 Day of Celebrations

Wednesday, March 14, Day 25 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:
John 18:1-6 …He went forth with His disciples over the ravine of the Kidron, where there was a garden, in which He entered with His disciples. Now Judas also, who was betraying Him, knew the place, for Jesus had often met there with His disciples. Judas then, having received the cohort and officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees, came there with lanterns and torches and weapons. So Jesus, knowing all the things that were coming upon Him, went forth and said to them, “Whom do you seek?” They answered Him, “Jesus the Nazarene.” He said to them, “I am He.” And Judas also, who was betraying Him, was standing with them. So when He said to them, “I am He,” they drew back and fell to the ground.

Prayer for the Day:
Lord Jesus, You are the great “I Am.”  As the soldiers sought You, but under duress because of the orders of their leaders, may we seek You as the Savior and Lord of our lives.  As the soldiers fell down backward in fear, may we continually fall before You in worship and awe.

Day 24 of the 40 Days of Prayer, 1 Day of Celebrations

Tuesday, March 13, Day 24 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:
Matthew 26:39-43 And He went a little beyond them, and fell on His face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as You will.” And He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “So, you men could not keep watch with Me for one hour? Keep watching and praying that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” He went away again a second time and prayed, saying, “My Father, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, Your will be done.” Again He came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy.

Prayer for the Day:
Lord, my spirit is willing but far too often my flesh is weak.  Help me to watch and pray.  Strengthen me in the daily battle to remain vigilant.  Christ was faithful, living me an example to follow.  Make me faithful like Christ.

Day 23 of the 40 Days of Prayer, 1 Day of Celebrations

Monday, March 12, Day 23 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 22:39-46 And He came out and proceeded as was His custom to the Mount of Olives; and the disciples also followed Him. When He arrived at the place, He said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation.” And He withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and began to pray, saying, “Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done.” Now an angel from heaven appeared to Him, strengthening Him. And being in agony He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground.

Prayer for the Day:
Christ, we see Your suffering as You are praying in the final moments before Your arrest.  You were faithful to the very end, despite Your full knowledge of the events about to unfold.
