Day 6 of 21 Days Of Prayer

April 13, 2024

As with yesterday, today's contribution is another set of verses from the gospel that should appear in some form in every prayer guide. They articulate one of the key reasons we all gather together in one spiritual fellowship in the first place. Without Jesus' sacrifice, there would be no Christianity.

Jesus is the reason we choose the light over the dark

John 14: 6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

Our prayer inspiration for today is:

Day 6 – April 13

Contributed by Susan & Ted Stokes 

John 3: 16-21

For God so loved the world

that he gave his one and only Son,

that whoever believes in him

shall not perish but have eternal life.

For God did not send his Son into the world

to condemn the world,

but to save the world through him.

Whoever believes in him is not condemned,

but whoever does not believe

stands condemned already

because he has not believed in the name

of God's one and only Son.

This is the verdict:

Light has come into the world,

but men loved darkness instead of light

because their deeds were evil.

Everyone who does evil hates the light

and will not come into the light

for fear that his deeds will be exposed.

But whoever lives by the truth

comes into the light

so that it may be seen plainly

that what he has done

has been done through God.

Looking Forward

an excerpt from a prayer for The 73rd Annual National Day of Prayer (2024):

"It is time to stop hiding away our light . . . We are called to be a bright, shining light, exposing and dispelling the darkness! . . . Let us stand, pray, and watch as our prayers move the heart and hands of God, availing much! We must lift up the Word and light up the world!"

May God bless our prayer journey together.
