Prayer For April 3rd

April 3, 2015

finished

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,

We come together today with humble hearts. We think of you and our hearts are soft and emotional as we remember all that happened to you when you went to the cross. Lord, there is nothing we can ever say or do, that could make us worthy of what you endured and gave up so we might be saved… but that’s the wonder in your sacrifice…it’s not about us, it’s all about you and your amazing grace.
Thank you, Lord…thank you for taking  upon yourself the weight of our every sin. Thank you, for enduring the betrayal, beatings, abuse, slander, ridicule, mocking, pain and grief…there is nothing that we will ever face that you cannot understand because of all you went through.There is no physical pain we will ever face that is greater than what you endured. We will never know the kind of loneliness and isolation that you felt as you were separated from your Father. We will never know the kind of hatred you experienced. We will never face anything, that could begin to compare to the crushing weight of despair and sin that you bore for all of us. I doubt few of us could ever experience the kind of hopelessness  and helplessness your family and followers felt as they watched you die… as they watched that stone sealing your tomb…as they walked home that night numb and overwhelmed from all they had just seen happen.

If we didn’t know the rest of the story, we would be full of despair as well, Lord. May this day remind us that even though we don’t know what’s to come in our remaining time on earth…though we don’t see the end in sight for the adversity, grief, loneliness and illness that besets us…unlike your disciples and loved ones, we do know how everything ends…we know there is nothing and no one, that will defeat us. We know because of what you endured and what you defeated, we have a hope and a future. We know what awaits and we know this is just the dawn before the morning. We know you hold the keys to sin and death… and if we never received another thing from you in this life, we have already received gifts we are so undeserving of… salvation and redemption through your blood.
Lord, may  we solemnly think about all the things that weigh us down and may we visualize laying them at the foot of the cross where you died to set us free. Help us to realize how everything pales in comparison to what you endured… everything pales in comparison to the amazing love that you have for each of us…You oh, Lord, are worthy of our praise…with humble hearts we come before you and we thank you that we have a Savior in whose name we can pray. Amen
May you be overwhelmed by His infinite love for you today!!
In His love,
Debbie Kay
