Thanks, Praise and Trust

It’s CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN 2018 here on GUWG, where from now until December 25 we’re preparing our hearts for the arrival of the Savior of the World.

Here’s a lovely little prayer to pray throughout the season:

Jesus on Prayer

We’re in the midst of a series entitled JESUS ON EVERYTHING. Today’s topic? PRAYER.

Jesus had lots to say not his subject:

One With the Father and Son

GUWG-Cross-Cloud-5We continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

We’re taking a deeeeep dive into this rather provocative question: Who did Jesus say he is?

In his very first words recorded in the Bible, Jesus made it clear that he’s God’s son. We’ve been exploring exactly what he meant by that over the past few days.

Today, we’ll look at a prayer he prayed for his disciples and — get this — you and me. Wow.

Bask in each and every word:

Pray!

We’re attempting to answer the question What exactly are Christians supposed to do? by looking at 50 commands straight from the mouth of Jesus.

We kicked things off with Jesus’ Big 2. He said there are no commands greater than these:

  1. Love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.
  2. Love your neighbor as yourself.

(Matthew 22:37-40; Mark 12:28-34)

Jesus’ other commands show what it reeeeeally means to love God and others. Here’s today’s featured command: PRAY!

It’s Jesus’ final night before the Cross. After the Last Supper, Jesus and his disciples went to the Garden of Gethsemane at the foot of the Mount of Olives:

Jesus Prayed for You and Me

What’s the last thing Jesus did before he headed to the garden to be arrested?

He prayed for his disciples — and then, get this: he prayed for you and me.

Here is his prayer in its entirety. Far too few humans have actually read through it in one sitting. Don’t be one of them. Pray through every word right now. Please.

Move Mountains

On Monday of his final week on this planet, Jesus cursed a fruitless fig tree. The next day, Jesus and his disciples walked past the same tree:
