“He is not here; he is risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.” ~ Matthew 28:6 NIV
Death could not hold him down! The grave could not keep Him! The fact that Jesus rose means that not only has He proven Himself victorious, but we too can claim the victory over sin, death, hell and the grave through our faith in Him and that we can also claim the incredible gift of eternal life.
We praise your great name. We bless you for your strength, your mighty acts, your unconditional love and for your incredible gift of eternal life to us through your Son Jesus Christ. We honor you Lord and we thank you that Jesus Christ got up from the grave through your mighty power, He took the keys of death, hell and the grave and making it possible for us to have a life of freedom in you.
Lord you made the way for us. Your blueprint plan for our salvation can never be altered, nor can it be stopped by the hands of man in their attempt to set up roadblocks for us your children. Lord we confess our need for you and acknowledge that without you, we can do nothing.
We celebrate, honor and praise you as our Redeemer, Savior, Lord, Deliverer, Sustainer, Way-Maker, Promise-Keeper, Light in our Darkness and our Friend who sticks closer than a brother or sister. May we never take your love for granted nor may we ever frustrate your grace.
Keep us rooted and grounded in your word. Let your word permeate our heart and spirit and be used as the compass that will guide us through this journey of life each and every day. We thank you for your divine protection against every plan of the enemy to steal, kill, destroy, divide and conquer. Cover us under your blood. May your plans for our lives through Christ be fulfilled at the appointed time.
Thank you for your ever abiding presence in our midst. Let your river of grace and your healing virtues flow through us. Wherever there are streams flowing, let your river of peace, happiness, joy and good success now begin to rise to overflowing. Where there is darkness and a state of chaos and confusion, Lord we ask right now that the light that comes as a result of the resurrection power of Jesus Christ begin to shine through.
Thank you Lord for the resurrection gift of eternal life. To you be all the glory, honor and praise, in Jesus name. Amen
