DAY 35/MONDAY/APRIL 15
Pray for Christians around the world who are walking with Jesus through Holy Week. Ask God to help us slow down, keep our eyes on Jesus and his cross, and to pay attention to the mighty story of our salvation this week.
DAY 36/TUESDAY/APRIL 16
Pray for our pastors, worship team, and staff at Gate City as they prepare for Holy Week and Easter Sunday. Ask God to be near them and help them experience his presence in this very busy time of the church year.
DAY 37/WEDNESDAY/APRIL 17
Pray for those being baptized at GCV on Easter. Pray that their hearts will be prepared – and their baptism would be a true outward declaration to the world of their inward change and status in Christ. Pray for everyone who you will invite to Easter service. Pray that they will meet the Risen Jesus and be drawn to give their lives to him.
DAY 38/MAUNDY THURSDAY
On this night long ago, Jesus asked his disciples to watch and pray. Ask God to help us grow strong in prayer. Pray that we will keep our eyes open to see needs around us, and hearts ready to take them to the throne of God.
DAY 39/ GOOD FRIDAY
Thank God today for the deep, deep love of Jesus. When we walked away from God, God ran after us, knowing he would end up on the cross. Ask Jesus to help us begin to feel “how wide and long and high and deep” his love for us is. Pray for the Holy Spirit to move during our “Good Friday Night Of Worship” with Oak City Church.
DAY 40/HOLY SATURDAY
Today we wait by Jesus’ tomb. Ask God to help us feel how deeply we need that tomb to be opened, and for Jesus to be alive. Pray that we would long and hope for resurrection.
Alleluia! Christ is risen! “Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” Today, offer all of our Lenten prayers to the Risen Christ, who is seated at the right hand of God. He is alive, and he is mighty to save!
