Bible Verse & Quote on Prayer

“Death is swallowed up in victory.
   O death, where is your victory?
   O death, where is your sting?”
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” (1 Corinthians 15:54-58)

“The gospel declares that no matter how dutiful or prayerful we are, we can't save ourselves. What Jesus did was sufficient.”  - Brennan Manning

Congregational Bible Prayer

A Prayer from Luke 24:1-12

Leader: On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb.
Congregation: They found the stone rolled away from the tomb.
Leader: When they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
Congregation: While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them.
Leader: In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them,
Congregation: “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!
Leader: Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’”
Congregation: Then they remembered his words. When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others.

(Revelation 21:5)

Confession for Forgiveness

“Create in me a clean heart, O God,
   and renew a right spirit within me.

Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
   and uphold me with a willing spirit.”

In Christ Alone

In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid Ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone! - who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe.
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me
From life's first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand.

Yes and Amen

Father of kindness
You have poured out of grace
You brought me out of darkness
You have filled me with peace
Giver of mercy
You're my help in time of need
Lord I can't help but sing

Faithful you are
Faithful forever you will be
Faithful you are
All your promises are yes and Amen
All your promises are yes and Amen

Beautiful Savior
You have brought me near
You pulled me from the ashes
You have broken every curse
Blessed Redeemer
You have set this captive free
Lord I can't help but sing

Faithful you are
Faithful forever you will be
Faithful you are
All your promises are yes and Amen
All your promises are yes and Amen

I will rest in your promises
My confidence is your faithfulness
I will rest in your promises
My confidence is your faithfulness

Faithful you are
Faithful forever you will be
Faithful you are
All your promises are yes and Amen
All your promises are yes and Amen
