A Prayer for Monday of Holy Week 2013

“God of strength and mercy, by the suffering and death of Your Son, free us from slavery to sin and death and protect us in all our weakness; through Christ Jesus our Lord.  Amen.”  UM Book Of Worship #346

Let us not get so caught up in the busy-ness of the work week that we fail to journey with Jesus and try to envision His last days on earth.  He certainly knew where the week would take Him – and we do now only in hindsight – but we may more fully appreciate His last days if we dare to journey with Him and experience even a little of what He actually endured. 

Recommended readings for Monday of Holy Week:  Isaiah 42:1-9; Psalm 36:5-11; Hebrews 9:11-15; John 12:1-11
