A Prayer Prompted by the Resurrection in Luke 24

Lord Jesus,

It is truly amazing that you could lay down your life for our sake, knowing that you would rise from the dead shortly after.  We do not want to be slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken.  Help us to understand, just as you helped those early disciples, all that is written in the Scriptures concerning yourself.

We believe that everything written about you in the Low of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.  Much of that was fulfilled by you in your first coming.  We await all that has yet to be fulfilled with eagerness.

Help us now also to be fully engaged in the work of proclaiming repentance and forgiveness of sins to all nations.  Please clothe us with power from on high, the power of your Holy Spirit as we now give our lives completely to serving you.

We trust you as our Savior and worship you as our Lord,

Amen
