Prayer for Matthew 28

Choose Verse

Dear Father God, thank You for seeing past the evil of death, and bringing about Christ’s resurrection. Thank You that we no longer need to fear death and hell and thank You for placing us in Christ. Show us more of Him we pray, and may we participate in the fellowship of His sufferings and the power of His resurrection. May there be less of me and more of Him today, and may Christ shine through my life, as I go out into the world and tell of the wonders of His grace – in Jesus' name. AMEN.

“He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.”
(Matthew 28:6)
Source: Verse of the day for Matthew 28:6

Heavenly Father, what an astonishing lesson to learn from the wonderful story of the resurrection, where the tears of the women and the doubts of Christ's disciples caused them to forget the truth of Your Word and the glorious gospel of Christ - His sacrifice for sin and His victory over death. I pray that I will not allow the emotions of my heart, the imaginations of my mind and the difficulties of life's circumstances to eclipse the truth of Your word; or overshadow the many precious promises that are ours, by faith in Him. May I stand on the truth of Scripture; obey Your commands; trust Your promises and never forget that Your Word is steadfast; sure; living; powerful; sharper than any double-edged sword and cannot be broken. I pray that with every passing day I would stand fast on its truth and not be shaken - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.”

Heavenly Father, I stand amazed at Your grace and goodness and that You would give Your only begotten Son to live a perfect life and die a sacrificial death for ME. Thank You that all power in heaven and earth is His and that I am secure in His hand. Keep me from unfounded worry and foolish fretting, knowing that He is in ultimate control of my life and that Your perfect plans and purposes for all humanity will finally be fulfilled through Him. To Him be all praise and glory for ever and ever, AMEN.

And I pray that You would enable me to go and disciple others in Your strength, so that together we all come to a knowledge of the truth in Christ Jesus, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
