Holy Week prayer

Tomorrow begins Holy Week.  My heart is filled with hope for this week and it’s impact on our lives.  I am praying for every member of our congregation as we prepare for Easter Sunday.  I will use this blog this coming week to focus our attention on Christ as He moves toward the cross.  It will be a “prayer rich” exercise.  We will hear the Lord pray in the upper room.(John 17)  We will watch Him pray in the Garden of Gethsemane.(Mark 14)  We will listen as He prays on the cross, “Father forgive them”(Luke 23) and “My God why have you forsaken me?”(Mark 15) and “Father, into Thy hands I commit my spirit”(Luke 23).  Years before, when the disciples first asked Jesus to teach them to pray(Luke 11), it was because they saw Him pray and sensed the power of it.  How much more should the prayers of Christ in His last week inspire us.  Lord teach us to pray!  Help us to learn by watching You!
