40 Days, 40 Prayers

Day 28, or Back to Life

 

There are moments in our lives when it feels like the end. We feel empty, like we have nothing left to give. Things that used to bring us joy have gone stale. We can’t see how we can move forward.

 

You could be an empty shell, a lifeless corpse, a zombie walking dead for all your life, and still there is hope for you to be brought back to life.

 

The Author of life has conquered the grave so that we may see that there is no depth He cannot reach to pull us out of, no state so cold He can’t unfreeze us, no place so dark He can’t shine a light.

 

He was born to bring second life. You were born to live for it.

 

 

 

John 11:25-27 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” She said to him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one coming into the world.”

 

 

My prayer for today:

 

Lord, when everything in me feels withered and dead, breathe new life into my heart and new zeal for serving You.

 

Amen.
