A Prayer for You Today (1)

April 10, 2023

A subjective definition of death would unleash great evil.

Wesley J. Smith

Jesus Christ did die, was buried, and is risen; three verifiable truths are the backbone of the Gospel. Paul understands them as foundational (1 Corinthians 15:3-8). What He did in life will echo for all eternity.


A prayer for you today.

O God,

who for our redemption gave your only begotten Son to the death of the cross, and by His glorious resurrection delivered us from the power of our sin, and all our enemies.


How much joy do you want us to have? Please give it. How much peace and love do you desire us to feel and acknowledge from you? How much security, hope, faith, joy, and provision. Oh, Father, please be pleased to give it to us, your children, for Jesus' sake.


Grant us so to die daily to sin, that we may evermore live with Him in the joy of His resurrection.


Through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and forever.

It is Monday, and Christ is risen. He has risen indeed.



God bless you in all things,
