Compassionate Heavenly Father, I come in Jesus’ Name this Easter season to thank You for allowing Your Son to die on the cruel cross so that I, a hopeless sinner, can have a completely new life and ultimately a home in Heaven by accepting Your offer of salvation. You express in Your Word, the Bible, that the joy of Heaven is for real, and the suffering in Hell is not anything to joke about.
How comforting it is that I can kneel at the cross and worship You for taking care of all of my sins of the past, present, and future. You have the power to lead me to any kind of help that I need. In Isaiah 53:5, Isaiah looked ahead to the future suffering of the Messiah. “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.”
Jesus, it is such a blessing to know that as I live this life here on earth, You are the light of the world. Just as God led the people of Israel through the wilderness with the light from the pillar of fire, You are now the light of the world for me as a believer in You. You bring God’s presence, protection, and guidance into every situation.
Just like a flashlight when going down a dark road, You give enough light for every step I am on. Direct me to be willing to allow You to shine in and through me so that I will not stumble in darkness.
We ask that you will lead all of our government leaders and medical scientists to walk in Your light as they work on solving the medical crisis we are in. Provide protection and comfort for all those, and their families, who are working tirelessly on the front lines to help as many people as possible.
In John 8:12b Jesus said: “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” You are worthy Lord. Worthy to be thanked, praised, worshiped, and adored. Amen.
