A Daily Prayer based on Matthew 26:57-75

Lord Jesus, I bring myself and ______________________ before you this day. I pray that we will all be sobered by reflecting on the suffering you endured for us. You were falsely accused by men who should have been the first to recognize who you were. Your enemies spit in your face and struck you with their fists. They slapped you and mocked you. May you produce in us a deep gratitude for taking these blows for us, that we might know you and the Father and have the promise of eternal life. Remind us when we are falsely accused and ridiculed that you are giving us the privilege of entering into the fellowship of your sufferings. We see in Peter’s denial the folly of self-reliance and self-assurance. Grant us such a humble dependence upon you that we would not think of counting upon ourselves for the strength to stand strong under pressure. By the work of your Spirit, may we each be able to proudly bear your name and to stand for your truth in every circumstance. We look forward, Lord, to that day when we will see you, the Son of Man, sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming in the clouds of heaven. May you come quickly, Lord Jesus. It is in your name that I pray, amen.

Our churches are abandoning God, our families are in shambles. There is only one hope for restoration - the Lord Jesus Christ.
