A Daily Prayer based on John 16:16-33

Lord Jesus, Through your resurrection, you turned the grieving of your disciples to joy. When you were crucified, they wept and mourned while the world rejoiced, but they saw you again and rejoiced with a joy that no one was able to take away. There will be times in my life and the life of ______________________ when we too will weep and mourn and lose sight of you. I pray that in those times you will turn our grief to joy by allowing us to see you again with the eyes of our heart. May we receive from you a joy that no one can take away. I pray that we will be able to forget the anguish and pain through a fresh and abiding vision of you. Your friends scattered when you were in trouble, and left you all alone. Yet you were not alone because your Father was with you. I pray when we feel abandoned by friends in times of trouble you will remind us that we are not truly alone because you are with us. As you taught us, in this world we have trouble. But I pray that we will take heart and remember that you have overcome the world. May we find peace in you. I thank you for your promise that the Father will give us whatever we ask in your name. And so I pray that we will ask the Father in faith for an overcoming peace, and that through answered prayer our joy may become complete. I pray that we will take comfort in your word that the Father loves us because we love you and believe that you came to us from him. We affirm that you came from the Father and entered the world, and then returned to the Father when you had finished your work on earth. We thank you and praise you that you are now at the right hand of God, interceding for us. It is in your name, Lord Jesus Christ, that I pray. Amen.

Welcome

Never before in the history of our country has America faced a moral crisis like the one before us today. The foundations of our government are crumbling right before our eyes. Our churches are abandoning God, our families are in shambles. There is only one hope for restoration - the Lord Jesus Christ.
