During this final week of the 40 Days of Prayer, let our prayers retrace the path to Calvary and to the empty tomb. We will continue to pray for our church too, seeking new life for MHCC. But remember this: For Jesus and perhaps for us, resurrection and new life comes after a time of death and mourning.
Today is Palm Sunday, the day our Lord rode into Jerusalem and was acclaimed by many as king. Most of those who hailed him that day misunderstood his Lordship. May we both acclaim him as our Lord AND submit fully to his rule.
Thank you, Lord, for coming into our lives and our church. We welcome you as Lord, and we pray that we will find our true freedom under your command.
