Getty Music: Sing! 2019 Daily Prayer

 

Pray for Sing! 2019 - Speaker: John MacArthur

45 From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land. 46 About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lemasabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).

47 When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling Elijah.”

48 Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. 49 The rest said, “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.”

50 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.

51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split 52 and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people.

54 When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was the Son of God!” - Matthew 27:45-54 (NIV)

Dear Friends,

As we pray for the speakers this week, we pray today for John MacArthur:

  1. Give thanks for the life and faithfulness of John MacArthur and how we had helped so many see Christ with depth and clarity. Give thanks also for his work at helping churches sing - most recently through the “Hymns of Grace” hymnal which has helped form the diet of so many churches here and abroad as they plan for their Sunday services.

  2. Pray for John as he preaches on the death and sufferings of Christ.

  3. Pray for pastors, artists, and worship leaders - that all of us are inspired to think of the Gospel in more rich and full ways as we live and prepare for each Sunday, because of this talk.

Grateful for your prayers.

Song for Day 18 - 10,000 Reasons - Matt Redman at Sing!

In age and feebleness extreme,
Who shall a helpless worm redeem?
Jesus, my only hope Thou art,
Strength of my failing flesh and heart:
O could I catch one smile from Thee,
And drop into eternity!
- Charles Wesley
