Praying the Scriptures -A Prayer on Resurrection Sunday-

 31.3.13

The Disciples Peter and John Running to the Sepulchre on the Morning of the Resurrection by Eugène Burnard


God of our Lord Jesus Christ, Father of Glory, give me a spirit of wisdom and revelation so that I may fully know Jesus. Enlighten my eyes that I may know what is the hope to which You have called me, what are the riches of this glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of Jesus' power toward me and my brothers and sisters, toward us who believe, according to the working of the great might that worked in Christ when you, Father, raised Him from the death and seated him at your right hand in heavenly places.

Thank you for your grace, for your rich mercy, and the great love with which you have loved us. Thank you because you made us alive with Christ! Just like today we remember and rejoice that the tomb is empty, that death was conquered, so today we rejoice that we are alive in Him! We are no longer dead, because of the power of the Resurrection, we are alive in Christ! Oh what a Glorious Grace that brings life through death! What a glorious Grace that conquers sins and through the power of the Resurrection gives us victory over the sin that once enslaved us!

Thank you because you have raised us up with Jesus and seated us with him and in Him in heavenly places. I pray that we may be a grateful and obedient people that proclaims a risen Christ and the immeasurable riches of His grace in kindness toward us, sinners.

Father help me live as you have taught us, knowing that my sinful nature has been crucified with Christ, that it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. Thank you, because now, by grace I can live a life by faith in Jesus, who loved me and gave himself for me.

I praise you Conquering King!

In Jesus' name,

Amen

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
