Happy Easter everyone! Today we’re celebrating the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ! Because of Him, death was conquered and we can now have eternal life in heaven when we accept His free gift of salvation. Praise be to God for Jesus’ sacrifice! And, unlike other religious leaders people try to worship, Jesus didn’t stay dead – He came back and ascended (alive) into Heaven after appearing to many witnesses. That is so amazing! We should all be thankful today and remember the gift we’ve been given on the amazing day of Easter.
Every Sunday I’m going to write a prayer for the coming week, so here is today’s prayer:
Thank You so much for dying on the cross for my sins and then being raised from the dead three days later, conquering death for us all. Thank You that I can live eternally with You and have a personal relationship with God through Your blood that has made me righteous and washed away all my sins.
I pray this week You will reveal Yourself to me more than ever before so that I can see Your face and know You better than ever. Show me how amazing You are! Remind me of Your faithfulness! Lead my every step and help me to be faithful and obedient to You.
In Jesus’ incredible, resurrected name I pray.
