Day 22 of the 40 Days of Prayer, 1 Day of Celebrations

Sunday, March 11, Day 22 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 22:24-27 And there arose also a dispute among them as to which one of them was regarded to be greatest. And He said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who have authority over them are called ‘Benefactors.’ But it is not this way with you, but the one who is the greatest among you must become like the youngest, and the leader like the servant. For who is greater, the one who reclines at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at the table? But I am among you as the one who serves.

Prayer for the Day:
God, may we see our greatness in our service of others.  Give us a Christ-like, servant attitude.  Help me by the power of Your Holy Spirit to imitate the Lord Jesus in His sacrificial life for us all.

Day 21 of the 40 Days of Prayer, 1 Day of Celebrations

Saturday, March 10, Day 21 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 22:14-20 When the hour had come, He reclined at the table, and the apostles with Him. And He said to them, “I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; for I say to you, I shall never again eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.” And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He said, “Take this and share it among yourselves; for I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine from now on until the kingdom of God comes.” And when He had taken some bread and given thanks, He broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” And in the same way He took the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood.

Prayer for the Day:
Lord, Your life, Your death and Your resurrection from the dead is our bread and drink.  As food gives life to our bodies, so too does Your gracious act on the cross provide life to our souls.  Today, we take time to think and remember.  We consider Your willingness to fulfill all that was necessary to make forgiveness of our sins possible.  We remember the work You did to bring us into a new covenant relationship with God.  I confess that You are my life and my hope, forever.

Day 20 of the 40 Days of Prayer, 1 Day of Celebrations

Friday, March 9, Day 20 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 22:1-6 Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which is called the Passover, was approaching. The chief priests and the scribes were seeking how they might put Him to death; for they were afraid of the people. And Satan entered into Judas who was called Iscariot, belonging to the number of the twelve. And he went away and discussed with the chief priests and officers how he might betray Him to them. They were glad and agreed to give him money. So he consented, and began seeking a good opportunity to betray Him to them apart from the crowd.

Prayer for the Day:
Lord Jesus, You bore the betrayal of a close friend as part of Your suffering on our behalf.  Every betrayal, every treacherous act that has happened to us, You have experienced.  You know my heartbreaks and disappointments.  You know broken relationships and the pain that comes with it.  You willingly suffered all of our painful moments in Your sufferings. Thank You for Your sacrifice.
