A Prayer Prompted by John 6

Dear God and Father,

We thank you for sending Jesus, the bread of life and the bread that came down from heaven. We understand that we will live through him or we will not live at all. At this moment we express our total faith and trust in him and him alone.

It is through his death and resurrection – through the giving of his body and the shedding of his blood – that we are saved.

Help us please, by the power of your Holy Spirit to remain faithful unto death to that commitment.

We have no other hope aside from Jesus Christ,

Amen

Luke 8 starts with teaching, but this will be followed by several amazing examples of Christ’s power.  Jesus will encourage us to share the word with hope and to trust him when things begin to look hopeless.

A Prayer Prompted by Matthew 28

Heavenly Father,

You are the Source of all life and the Creator of all things. And we understand that you gave your Son to suffer death in our place so that our sins would be forgiven.

We thank you for Jesus, who died, but was always planning to rise from the dead. He is now risen, just as he said.

He has conquered the grave and the gates of hell cannot prevail against his church.

Though we may feel sinful, dirty and lost, we trust that our sins are forgiven through faith in Jesus Christ.

Though we may feel forgotten and alone, we understand that he is Immanuel, God with us, and he has promised to be with us always.

Help us to constantly keep that in mind as we wait for his soon return.

Thank you in Christ’s name,

Amen.
