Monday, April 15:

  • Read about the clearing of the temple. (Matthew 21:10-17, Mark 11:15-18, Luke 19:45-48).
  • Pray that God would clear your heart of the things that are keeping you from him.

Tuesday, April 16:

  • Read Matthew 22:41-45; 24:36-44
  • Pray that you are always aware of who Jesus is and how he has worked in your life. Pray that Jesus will bring restoration in your life in the unknown hours.

Wednesday, April 17:

  • Read John 1:10-11, 12:37-38, Matthew 26:3-4
  • Pray that people see Jesus in you as you reach into your community and circles.

Thursday, April 18:

  • Read Matthew 26:17-30, Luke 22:7-23

Friday, April 19:

  • Read Luke 22:66-23:56, John 18:28-19:37
