03 MARCH (DAY 28)
BIBLE PASSAGE: LUKE 22: 24–23:25 DAILY PRAYER:
Lord God, we pray for the leaders of our church. Help them to shepherd and guide the flock entrusted to their care. Please keep them from seeking their own greatness by reminding them that greatness in the kingdom is seen through a servant-hearted life. Lord, help them to imitate the character of Jesus who was willing to be betrayed, mocked, rejected, flogged and gave up His life to bring others to God. Please bless their efforts in the Gospel. Help us to support them, that when Jesus returns we may all receive the crown of glory that will never fade. We ask this in Jesus’ name and for Your glory’s sake. Amen

Almighty God, we thank You for showing us Your love through the redemption of the cross. We praise You because Your anger has now been turned away from us and instead we receive Your favour. Father, we are living in hard times where we long to get away from this world because of its tragedies and sorrows. Often times our hearts are worried and wearied. Help us to seek comfort in You and Your Word so that we may live everyday awaiting Your return. Amen.

BIBLE PASSAGE: LUKE 24
Risen One, the One who fulfils all Scripture, we confess that oftentimes we are like those disciples on the road to Emmaus, we struggle to recognize you in the everyday journey of our lives. This is so true of so many of us at this moment when the whole world has been brought to its knees. We ask that through the reading of Your Word and the guidance of your Holy Spirit, You would open our eyes to see You in all of Your glory so that our faith in You is renewed and our hope in Your promises is anchored.
