HOLY WEEK INSPIRATION

Holy Week is the week from Palm Sunday to Easter. It starts with a parade for Jesus and includes Jesus making people leave the temple who were not treating it like God's house. Also the Last Supper happened that week along with Jesus washing the disciples' feet, praying in the Garden, getting arrested and going to the cross. But the week continues with Jesus rising from the dead on Easter. What an exciting week for Christians! God sent Jesus to teach people and to show people how to live. And that helps us know how to live, too!

"Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done."


Luke 22: 42 (NIV)

Today's Scripture Reading

Luke 22: 39-46 (NIV)


 Jesus Prays on the Mount of Olives


39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him. 40 On reaching the place, he said to them, “Pray that you will not fall into temptation.” 41 He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, 42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” 43 An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. 44 And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.

45 When he rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, he found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow. 46 “Why are you sleeping?” he asked them. “Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.”




THINK ON THIS!


Take time to pray for others;

Your friends and enemies.
