Passport to Prayer – Lent 2016
Thursday – Mar. 17, 2016
John 11:25: Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
Read John 11, the death and raising of Lazarus. For some reason, it takes Jesus two days to get the short distance to Mary and Martha’s house after he has heard Lazarus is dead. Martha is livid. She stomps out to meet Jesus and let her know how disappointed she is.
Today, recall the times you feel Jesus disappointed you. Don’t be shy. Get down to the nitty-gritty, as Martha did. Clearly express the feelings and emotions you experienced. Once you have done this, draw in long breaths of air. Release these feelings as you exhale.
You know we’ve had the same feelings as Martha, Lord Jesus. There are many times when we feel you have let us down. Help us release our disappointment this day. Forgive us for the many times we’ve focused more on our disappointments in you rather than the joy we experience in your kingdom. Amen.
