Praying with Paul: 'The Good News'

Monday, May 2, 2022

1 Corinthians 15:1-4

Dear Father, God of the living,

Thank you for the Good News that Jesus Christ, your Son, is risen from the dead. Thank you that by it I am saved and in it I stand, if I hold it fast - unless I believed in vain - which I did not.

Thank you for the important message we received - that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, - thank you, Lord! - that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance to the Scriptures, - thank you, Lord! - and that he appeared to many, many eyewitnesses - thank you, Lord! Praise your name!

In the name of Jesus I thank you for your resurrection power and ask that I may live so as to always have hope of sharing in it. Amen.
