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.
