Prayer based on Matthew 28:6. Themes: Resurrection, Faithfulness, Prophecy
Dear Lord, we come before you today with grateful hearts, knowing that you have fulfilled your promise to rise from the dead. We declare with joy that you are not here, for you have risen, just like you said. We thank you for the sacrifice you made on the cross, and for the victory you have won over sin and death. We claim the promise of your resurrection, and we ask that you would help us to live in the power of your resurrection every day. May we see the place where you were lying and be reminded of your great love for us. We pray this in your holy name, Amen.
Verse: He is not here, for he has risen, just like he said. Come, see the place where the Lord was lying.
This is a Promise. The verse is stating that Jesus has risen from the dead, just as he said he would. There is no command given to the reader.
