Prayer for John 11:4

“When Jesus heard it, He said, "This sickness will not end in death but is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it."”

Praying through John 11:4

Heavenly Father, thank You for the beautiful story of Lazarus and the many lessons I can learn from this amazing passage of Scripture. Thank You that sickness, sin, death, and hell, which is the inevitable result of all who fall short of Your glory, has been conquered forever through the death, burial, and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ on our behalf. Thank You that just as Mary and Martha’s period of misery was turned into laughter and joy, so my night of weeping has also been turned into a morning of joy with peals of singing, through faith in Christ my Redeemer. Thank You that because He lives, I too shall live. May I sing forth Your praise and glory in the eternal ages to come. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
