Prayer for April 23-29, 2017
Sermon Text: John 20:19-31
That our doubt may be transformed into doxology
Jesus! Enable us to be your resurrection people! Let every dimension of our lives be made complete in You. Fill us with your energizing and liberating Spirit. Prepare us to be people of forgiveness, but give us discernment of those circumstances when forgiveness should be withheld.
Some days we are full of doubt! We doubt your resurrection. We doubt that God’s resurrecting power could work through our lives. Help us to bring our doubts to You as an act of supplication, a plea for understanding. Forgive us when we use doubt as an act of resistance to the newness that You are constantly bringing into the world.
As You reveal yourself to us in the tumble and turmoil of our days, transform our doubt to doxology. Deepen our trust.
You are our Sovereign God! We exult in You! Amen.
