DayLight Scripture –

When it was noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. Then Jesus cried out, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthanie? which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

Mark 15: 33-34

DayLight Prayer –

Lord, I’ve felt this way before, and I know many others who have as well, but…I don’t believe you forsook Jesus…though I think he thought you did. Our human frailty overcomes our minds sometimes, and I believe we just can’t comprehend your presence with us.  But thanks be to you, that you do not forsake us! Amen.

DayLight Scripture –

God demonstrated power in the Messiah by raising him from the dead and placing him at God’s own right hand. There in God’s space he is far above all rulers, authorities, powers, dominions, titles, both now and always.

Ephesians 1: 20-21

DayLight Prayer –

Jesus, my Lord, I find it amazing that you…God’s right hand of power…know me, that we are on intimate speaking terms, that you listen to my every whimper! It is amazing that you gave your life, just so I can have this special place in your kingdom, free from sin and free from death. How can it be? So, I’m awed Lord…I’m awed.    Amen.

You come near when I call on you; you say, “Do not be afraid.”

Lamentations 3:57

DayLight Prayer –

Lord, Forgive me for my weak-minded days of fear, when in the rush of the moment, I don’t remember that you are only a breath away. So insignificant–a breath, yet I forget. Drop upon me your words of encouragement especially when I am in turmoil of any situation…those words so dear, “Do not be afraid.”  Amen.

Gracious Lord, My praise is all I can give when I think of the numerous times of your rescue. Those moments when an adversary full of hateful words came like a wave to swamp me, and you gave me a word of peace to speak. Give me a word of peace again today I pray. Amen.
