Day 30 – Scripture and Prayer for Lent

But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. Romans 5:8-10

Heavenly Father, You have proved Your love for us through Christ and His cross. In that cross You made us righteous through Jesus’shed blood. We are saved from a deserved  wrath through His death on that cross. Above all this we are reconciled to You in the cross. We are no longer enemies but friends. I AM A FRIEND OF GOD.  Because Jesus lives our lives are so different, so different that we say thank you in Jesus’ name. Amen

Day 29 – Scripture and Prayer for Lent

Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, the offspring of David, as preached in my gospel. 2 Timothy 2:8 ESV

God, may I follow this strong admonition. May I remember Jesus Christ. When I am weary from the struggle may I remember Jesus Christ. When I  need an example to follow may I remember Jesus Christ. When I am about to give into temptation may I remember Jesus Christ. When I need forgiveness for sins may I remember Jesus Christ. When I think I can’t possibly have victory and  live in newness of life may I remember Jesus Christ. When I am on my death bed, breathing my last, may I remember Jesus Christ  and as I close this prayer in His name, may I remember Jesus Christ. 

Day 28 – Scripture and Prayer for Lent

Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery. Hebrews 2:14‭-‬15 ESV

Lord, You do things differently. The one who has the power of death had us in bondage. You destroyed him and delivered us through…. death. It doesn’t get much more ironic than that. We develip strategies to be witness’ and win many to Christ and they so often go array. We lose yet You turn it into a win. Stephen proclaimed the gospel in Jerusalem and was stoned to death. Was this a loss for the church? Humanly speaking yes. More persecustion came out of this but as Your people were scattered they boldly preached the word everywhere and Saul who became Paul and preached the gospel fearlessly to the Gentiles, came to faith because of the marydom of Stephen. You do thing differently. Amen.

Day 27 – Scripture and Prayer for Lent

But we see him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone. Hebrews 2:9 ESV

Great God, The height of Your love is amazing. Lord Jesus, the depth of Your humility is almost unfathomable. The King of Glory is made lower than the angels. Then He suffered death. Great God, by Your amazing grace He suffered death for every man whoever lived including me. We have a great God, We have an awesome Savior, We are the recipients of amazing grace. We are so blessed.

Day 26 – Scripture and Prayer for Lent.

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit….I Peter 3:18 NKJV

Jesus, My Savior, You suffered for sins, my sins. The Righteous One is You, the unrighteous one is me. My name is synonomous with the unrighteous one.Your substitionary  sacrifice was purposeful. It was so that You could bring us to God, bring me to God. You literally died in the flesh but rose again by means of the Holy Spirit. My life changing relationship with God is because of You. My life is so different because of You. I can never thank you enough. Amen.
