Prayer Focus for March 2024

This month we commemorate the most sacred, holy events in Christian history…the crucifixion and resurrection of our Lord. In the midst of our busy lives and familiarity of the Gospel story, we can find ourselves losing the reverence and sense of gratitude that these two foundational truths hold.

Jesus aligned His heart and will to His Father’s will through prayer. He is an excellent example for us to follow. Over the coming weeks, let’s follow Christ’s lead and spend special time devoted to prayer, preparing our hearts for what God wants to teach us regarding surrender and obedience. The Bible gives us scriptures to pray to help prepare our hearts for Palm Sunday, Holy Week, Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday.

Philippians 2: 8-10 tells us that Christ was obedient even until death. “And when he was living as a man, he humbled himself and was fully obedient to God, even when that caused his death—death on a cross. So God raised him to the highest place”. This week, I encourage you to pray that you will be determined to obediently submit to God’s will as Jesus did.

Pray: Thank you, Father, for a desire to obey you willingly. Father, I want to have the spirit of obedience in my life, not rebellion or pride, not resistance or hard-heartedness, but a sensitive heart that is willing to do anything You command or require of me. I rebuke rebellion and stubbornness in Jesus’ Name. Amen
