Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for community. Thank you for how the staff in restaurants can be such a good example of how to serve others. Thank you for that same serving attitude that I see around me. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word. (Matthew 28:7-8)
Lord, I’m here again. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey. Lindsey, today’s scripture paints an interesting picture of joy… the joy of realizing that Jesus rose from the dead! I pray that you would find more of this joy today as you consider something you already know a bit more carefully. Joy is something we want to share. So, I pray that you will have the opportunity today to share your great joy that Jesus is risen with other disciples around you. And we will give the glory to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
Go quickly now, and tell his disciples, ‘He has been raised from death, and now he is going to Galilee ahead of you; there you will see him!’ Remember what I have told you.” So they left the tomb in a hurry, afraid and yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.
