40 Days of Prayer - Day 39

Day 39 – Crucifixion

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. – Galatians 2:20

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. Pray that Nonchle and other vulnerable children, Care Workers, Primary Caregivers across Africa, churches and volunteers with Hands at Work in Africa and the world, would feel the weight of what it means for Jesus to die for us. Pray that God would compel us to lay down our lives as living sacrifices. Let us begin our prayer with a few moments of silence.
