It’s Resurrection morning!

After all of Jesus’ actions to redeem us, He burst forth from the grave and soon he would head home to the Father accompanied by the angels. Nothing could hold Him back from fulfilling His promises to mankind. Nothing could keep Him from the Father. “The lost have been finding their way home through the cross for two thousand years. Easy to find yet missed by many, it marks the way to the Father’s house.”1 Eat at His table today and enjoy His blessings and the pleasure of His company.

“All praise to God, the Father of our Lord, Jesus Christ. It is by His great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, and we have a priceless inheritance that is kept in heaven for you.” (1 Peter: 3-4a; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Put on your favorite song celebrating the cross and Christ’s resurrection and worship Him!

  2. Invite someone to join you and your family at your dinner table, so you can share the love of Christ with someone lost or lonely.

  3. Realize that the same power that raised Christ from the dead lives in you! Realize that this power can save the lost, set sinners free, heal the sick and the mentally oppressed. It changes the literal environment of everywhere you go and everywhere you pray! Proclaim that you are walking in resurrection power!

  4. Pray that our nation experiences an outpouring of God’s presence because of the multitude of Believers with a revelation of God’s resurrection power in them praying together daily!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, thank you that You sent Jesus! Thank you, Jesus, that you came, died and powerfully resurrected from the dead! Thank you that You saved me and that You are able to save everyone who will believe! Thank you that You have filled me with resurrection power and I can go forth and proclaim Your Good News! Thank you that the prayers I pray for the lost and the sick and my sick nation will bear good fruit and I will see many miracles – things beyond what I can imagine! Because of Jesus’ blood and resurrection, Amen!

Today’s decree:

The resurrection power of Christ lives in me!
