Holy Week Prayer

God made you alive with Christ, for He forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross. In this way, He disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by His victory over them on the cross.  Colossians 2:14

Father,
What a victory You have won for us on the cross of Christ. You have disarmed the accuser and we no longer need to be afraid to come into Your presence. You have freed us from the dominion of sin and darkness and brought us into Your Kingdom of Light. We no longer have to bear the weight of our sins. Our guilt has been washed away by the blood of Christ. This is the joyous message of Easter! Sin and death have been conquered. Give us the strength and joy to walk in this freedom today. We praise You, O Lord, with all of our heart, soul and strength.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
 
Sing the words of this beautiful hymn, It Is Well with My Soul, written by Horatio Spafford. "My sin - O, the bliss of this glorious thought - My sin - not in part, but the whole, is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more, Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord, O my soul!"
