Praying the Bible ~ John 11:25

Praying through verses or passages of the Bible is a great way to help you pray according to the will and desires of God. Below is a passage of Scripture and a sample prayer. I would encourage you to pray that prayer, or, even better, read the passage and pray as God leads you.

Text: John 11:25
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me, even if he dies, will live.”  (Christian Standard Bible)

Prayer
Father, death is an enemy and often seems final in our everyday experience. Yet, we know that the world is more than we see. You sent us Jesus to give us the hope of life beyond death, and not only spiritual life but also, one day, physical resurrection. Lord, increase our faith to live not just for the now but for what comes next. Help us to remember that life is more than the 70 or 80 years you grant us and to trust in Jesus for the hope of resurrection. Help us to prioritize eternity in how we live each day. Amen.
