Celebrate Easter and Pray for Revival
AUTHOR: Holy Scripture
1 Corinthians 15:1-19
For over 2000 years the church across the globe has gathered together to remember that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ didn’t stay in the grave. This is a day when the people of God celebrate the everlasting life that defeated the grave. This isn’t merely looking back at what was done although that’s extremely essential, but this is also a time to remember that this same God is alive and at work in His church today whether gathered or scattered across our city. Come and join us! He is risen! He is risen, indeed!!
As you prepare to gather with the church today, pray that God would work our hearts collectively. Pray for:
- Those who have been invited to church who are coming for the first time in a long time
- Those who are hurting and need to hear a word from God
- Those who are coming because a family member twisted their arm to come
- Those who are faithfully living out their calling but need fresh wind in their sails
- Those you’ve been praying for during e90 even though they aren’t at a church on Resurrection Sunday
Lay all these people before the Lord in prayer and expect His Spirit to move among us across all five campuses in the KC Metro.
Prayer tills the soil of the soul to receive the word of God. Take time today resting, delighting and listening to God in prayer. Take 10 minutes today to pray for God to speak afresh through His word, and that you would have “ears to hear and eyes to see” His truth and direction.
How does the resurrection change the way you look at ordinary problems? Does it? How can you grow there?
If we are not intentional, the Christian message of Jesus’ resurrection may be easily overshadowed or absorbed into the mix of the Easter Bunny, Easter egg hunts, pastel colors, and marshmallow Peeps. But as Christians, the resurrection of Jesus must be front and center in our Easter celebrations.
