Day 24, 40 Days of Prayer, 1 Day of Celebration

Posted by Daniel Sweet on

Tuesday, March 13, Day 24 of the 40 Days of Prayer, 1 Day of Celebration: The 2018 prayer focus in preparation of our worship of Christ for His death for our sins and the celebration for His resurrection that gives us eternal life.

Verses of the Day: Matthew 26:39-43 And He went a little beyond them, and fell on His face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as You will.” And He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “So, you men could not keep watch with Me for one hour? Keep watching and praying that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” He went away again a second time and prayed, saying, “My Father, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, Your will be done.” Again He came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy.

Prayer for the Day:
Lord, my spirit is willing, but far too often my flesh is weak. Help me to watch and pray. Strengthen me in the daily battle to remain vigilant, to watch and pray. Christ, You were faithful, leaving me an example to follow. Make me faithful like You.
