Praying through Matthew 20:19

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word, and that You have told us the end from the beginning. O Lord, what love You had for that little band of disciples as You told them what would happen to You. And how little they understood at that time. Lord, open my eyes and my understanding to You. May I spend the rest of my life and on into eternity, thanking You and praising You for Your great love for me, when You were mocked, and flogged, and crucified. And praise Your name, O Lord, that the grave could not hold You and You rose to life on the third day, just as You said. Hallelujah! Praise my Saviour! AMEN.

“And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again.”
(Matthew 20:19)

Praying through Matthew 20:28

Loving Lord, I praise and thank You for Jesus, my Mighty Saviour and Servant King. Lord, today I pour out my life as an offering to You. I pray that I would serve You wholeheartedly and my service would bless those around me and be a witness to bring many to the knowledge of salvation in Jesus. Thank You that Jesus gave His life as a ransom for me and for all who would believe in His name. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

“Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.”
(Matthew 20:28)

Praying through Matthew 20:33

Heavenly Father, thank You for the Bible, the wonderful truths it contains, and the many lessons that we can learn from its pages if we only have a teachable spirit and a desire to know You more. Open my eyes to the lessons You would teach me, and I pray that I would recognise my need of You and be humble enough to acknowledge my need and ask for Your mercy, grace, and help. Help me not to miss any opportunity to learn of You or to help others to come to a deeper knowledge of Jesus. Thank You that He was willing to go to the Cross on my account, and thank You that there is no one who is outside Your gracious offer of salvation. This I pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.”
(Matthew 20:33)
