Week of Prayer for
Christian Unity

Prayer resources offered by the churches of Latvia.

Theme for the Day:
LET THE STONE BE ROLLED AWAY

Scripture Readings:
Ezekiel 37:12-14 – I am going to open your graves, and bring you up from your graves, O my people.
Psalm 71:18b -23 – Your power and your righteousness, O God, reach the high heavens.
Romans 8:15-21 – We suffer with Christ so that we may also be glorified with him.
Matthew 28:1-10 – He is not here; for he has been raised, as he said.

Questions:

  1. What are the events and the situations of our lives and the circumstances that make us lock ourselves in the grave – in sadness, grief, worries, anxiety and despair? What keeps us from accepting the promise and joy of the resurrection of Christ?
  2. How ready are we to share the experience of God with those whom we meet?

Prayer:

Lord Jesus, you have always loved us from the beginning, and you have shown the depth of your love in dying for us on the cross and thereby sharing our sufferings and wounds. At this moment, we lay all the obstacles that separate us from your love at the foot of your cross. Roll back the stones which imprison us. Awaken us to your resurrection morning. There may we meet the brothers and sisters from whom we are separated. Amen.
