Day 46

Holy Saturday

from the Jesus, Keep Me Near The Cross reading plan

Isaiah 53:9, Zechariah 12:10, Luke 23:50-56, John 19:31-42

Text: Isaiah 53:9, Zechariah 12:10, Luke 23:50-56, John 19:31-42

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.

O God, Creator of heaven and earth: Grant that, as the crucified body of your dear Son was laid in the tomb and rested on this holy Sabbath, so we may await with him the coming of the third day, and rise with him to newness of life; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

– from The Book of Common Prayer

    Jesus was so unworthy of the death that we did deserve! Yet he took our place. He bore our shame. He took on the wrath of God! For us! We have such an amazing reason to live joyfully each day!!!

    The disciples wrote … that others might believe. They saw these things. They were convinced of their accuracy and truth. Why can’t I?

      Lord Jesus,
      I ask You to reveal yourself to this dear sister and that You would open the eyes of her heart to see and believe You and all that You are. Thank You for dying for us and rising again and for Your Holy Spirit Who brings light to our hearts and points us to You. Thank You that we only need the faith of a mustard seed. Thank You that You see this dear sister and her cries to believe. Pour out Your grace and mercy. You are the faithful, all-powerful One and nothing is too hard for You, Jesus!!!

      Antimony, I just want to reassure you of this: you will get there in God’s time. He is revealing Himself to you – keep meeting him there.

      Some people fall in love at first sight, and some people take years to fall in love. This is your greatest, most intimate love story of all time – you don’t have to rush. Savour God, savour your learning, and let him draw you in.
