Prayer to Honor Jesus

 

Jesus we want to honor Your heroic act of laying down your life for us! Oh Lord, help our lives to reflect our appreciation! For Your word says,

 

"We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters." -1 John 3:16

 

Lord, replace our selfishness with generosity! Show us Lord, the areas of our lives that can we give up to better honor you and the sacrifice of Your son.

Prayer for Easter Week: Monday

Father, as we prepare to celebrate Easter this week, make us ready for life-changing event, not just going through the motions of another tradition.

We are remembering the last week that Jesus walked on this Earth as human. Instead of being consumed with preparing what we will wear or what we will eat, consume us with a desire to be closer to You. 

This is not about how beautifully dressed our families are, or how delicious the brunch we prepare is, it's about Your son, defying death so we can too.
