My Vision of You Raising the Dead-Lent 25, 2020

Prayer Focus: No Fear in Death

Father, it is amazing how one small virus can send an entire world into panic. One tiny invisible-to-the-naked-eye germ can bring the world to a halt, frozen in fear. We’re afraid of death. And yet, for Christians, we should have no fear in death. Death, where is thy sting? It’s gone. Jesus won the victory over it at the Cross, in the grave He proved it, and in His resurrection from the dead, He displayed it for the world to see…precisely so we’d look to Him and know that we should have holy fear of You, but death doesn’t have the final word of the last page of Your story. Life does. Remind me often of the life You bring. The life we can have in You. The good news is that while our troubles are many and enough for each day, You have overcome the world and defeated the death we fear. You overcame the grave so that we could too. Open our eyes to see. Open our ears to hear. Give us words to carry Your gospel of peace to those who need this hope and do not know it yet. For those who are skeptical, may they see the peace and calm in the Christians they know and be drawn to a saving faith in You. We do not need to fear death because You conquered it. This is the power of Christ in us. Make us willing evangelists who will never be ashamed of You, our Lord of life, our Savior from death, and our Deliverer to eternal hope in You. We love You, Lord. Amen!
