Resurrection Sunday, April 1 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 28:5-7 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.”
Philippians 2:9-11 “For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Prayer for the Day:
Jesus, we declare that You are Lord. You were Lord over Your own life, with all authority You laid it down for us and took it up again. You are Lord over sin, death and the grave, having died and risen again. You were Lord of the heavens and Lord of the earth since the beginning of time. You forever reign over all of the created universe. You are the Lord of my life both now and forever. You are Lord of eternity and Lord over the church. You are the risen and exalted Lord.
