Heavenly Father, I come in Jesus’ wonderful Name to thank You for this time of Easter to celebrate the completed cycle of events for my salvation, which is ultimately a home in Heaven with You. It was only a few months ago that I celebrated Christmas, the miraculous birth of Your Son coming to Earth to save mankind from a place of terrific sufferings called Hell. It is Jesus’ horrific death on the cross for my past, present, and future sins and His resurrection that has made it possible for me to live in Heaven with You forever after my life on earth. 

Thank you that what Jesus told Martha in John 11:25-26 applies to me as well. “‘I am the resurrection and the life, He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?’” Thank you that Easter does not only pertain to the past or a future time. Because of everything surrounding Easter, my life as a Christian has been fully impacted and affected in the present. One of the greatest gifts You have given me is the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.

Through Your Word, You correct and direct me on how to experience and enjoy many of your blessings. An example is Philippians 4:6-7. “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Jesus, thank you for all You did for me on the cross. Because of all that You have done, are doing, and will do in the future, I say to You Revelation 5:12b. “‘Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!’

In Jesus’ powerful Name, Amen.

All powerful Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name, I thank You for Easter, one of the most miraculous and powerful events in the world, as recorded in Mathew 28:5-7. “But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead.” 

Thank you that when I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior, You considered my sins to have died with Him, and I am no longer condemned. My salvation experience allowed me to become one with Him and have access to all that He is and can provide. I praise You for what is expressed in Galatians 2:20, that not only did I die to self through Christ, but that I was also raised with Him to now be able to live a Christian life. “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” It is an awesome gift You have given me through the Holy Spirit to now have the same resurrection power that raised Jesus from the dead dwelling within me as I live my daily life. Direct me to be developing this relationship with You by reading Your Word and spending quiet time communicating with You in prayer.  

Revelation 5:12b “‘Worthy is the lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!'” Amen.           

P.S. Since Good Friday, Easter, and the resurrection are all about Jesus, if these events are not personal and real to you, we encourage you to go to the Salvation Tab on our blog and follow the steps to become a child of God through salvation.
