40 Days of Prayer - Day 39

“…knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin.” – Romans 6:6

The Crucifixion is the most scandalous event in history. This is how the world meant to put a stop to Jesus and all that He was about. He came to proclaim good news to the poor, set the captives free, to bring sight to the blind, give liberty to the oppressed. Thank Jesus for His sacrifice and for showing us an excellent way. As we remember the weight of what Jesus did for us on the cross, pray for God to transform our hearts; compelling us to lay down our lives as living sacrifices. Let us begin our prayer in two minutes of silence as we remember the one who gave everything for our freedom.
