Day 39

Crucifixion and Resurrection

from the Jesus, Keep Me Near The Cross reading plan

John 11:25-26

BY She Reads Truth

Text: John 11:25-26

As we walk through this season of reflection and repentance together, we want to provide time and space for us as individuals and a community to meditate on God’s Word and bow at His feet in prayer.

Each Saturday during Lent we will read a brief passage of Scripture and a corporate prayer, both carefully chosen for this specific place in our Lenten journey. Sundays will be dedicated to scripture memorization, one of our favorite habits here at She Reads Truth.

We pray you will not only meet with the Savior on these quieter weekend days, but linger there with Him, in prayer and in His Word.


I marvel that thou shouldst become incarnate,
   be crucified, dead, and buried.
The sepulchre calls forth my adoring wonder,
 for it is empty and thou art risen;
 the four-fold gospel attests it,
 the living witnesses prove it,
 my heart’s experience knows it.
Give me to die with thee that I may rise to new life,
 for I wish to be as dead and buried
   to sin, to selfishness, to the world;
 that I might not hear the voice of the charmer,
   and might be delivered from his lusts.
O Lord, there is much ill about me — crucify it,
 much flesh within me — mortify it.
Purge me from selfishness,
 the fear of man, the love of approbation,
 the shame of being thought old-fashioned,
 the desire to be cultivated or modern.
Let me reckon my old life dead
   because of crucifixion,
 and never feed it as a living thing.
Grant me to stand with my dying Saviour,
 to be content to be rejected,
 to be willing to take up unpopular truths,
 and to hold fast despised teachings until death.
Help me to be resolute and Christ-contained.
Never let me wander from the path of obedience
 to thy will.
Strengthen me for the battles ahead.
Give me courage for all the trials,
 and grace for all the joys.
Help me to be a holy, happy person,
 free from every wrong desire,
 from everything contrary to thy mind.
Grant me more and more of the resurrection life:
 may it rule me,
 may I walk in its power,
 and be strengthened through its influence.
