Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,  

  • God, I stand in awe of you. Regardless of where I’m at - YOU - are amazing. Everything that exists came out of you. Everything exists at your pleasure and for your purpose. You made me, you love me and I am yours. I am yours and you are mine and I worship you – forever.   ​

Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.​   

  • Jesus, come back here and fix this NOW. Solve every problem and heal every hurt. Bring God’s best to every-one of us. Until you come back to reign physically; reign spiritually in us in greater ways. Fill us all with your grace and revelation.

  • God, send me ONE person today to share your love with.  

Give us this day our daily bread

  • ​God, I look to you for everything (physical, financial, emotional and spiritual). Give me all I need to be blessed & to be a Blessing.  (pray specifically for needs)  

  • All creatures look to you to give them their food at the proper time. When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things.  When you hide your face, they are terrified; Ps 104:27-29

 

Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us

  • God, it’s my sin I’m concerned about and no one else’s.  As I release others please forgive and release me from the consequences of my sins and failures. (Pray for those who’ve harmed you)  

Lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from the evil one

  • God, now that I’m free from all punishment, don’t let me use my freedom to walk into a trap.  Don’t let me go down destructive roads today, especially the ones that I want to go on. Lead me on the path of life today.  

  • To him who is able to keep you from falling and to bring you faultless and joyful before his glorious presence. Jude 1:24

1 Corinthians Chapter 15


The Resurrection of Christ

Let me now remind you, dear brothers and sisters, of the Good News I preached to you before. You welcomed it then, and you still stand firm in it. 2 It  is this Good News that saves you if you continue to believe the message  I told you—unless, of course, you believed something that was never  true in the first place.

3 I  passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed  on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. 4 He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said. 5 He was seen by Peter and then by the Twelve. 6 After that, he was seen by more than 500 of his followers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died. 7 Then he was seen by James and later by all the apostles. 8 Last of all, as though I had been born at the wrong time, I also saw him. 9 For  I am the least of all the apostles. In fact, I’m not even worthy to be  called an apostle after the way I persecuted God’s church.

10 But  whatever I am now, it is all because God poured out his special favor  on me—and not without results. For I have worked harder than any of the  other apostles; yet it was not I but God who was working through me by  his grace. 11 So it makes no difference whether I preach or they preach, for we all preach the same message you have already believed.


The Resurrection of the Dead

12 But  tell me this—since we preach that Christ rose from the dead, why are  some of you saying there will be no resurrection of the dead? 13 For if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised either. 14 And if Christ has not been raised, then all our preaching is useless, and your faith is useless. 15 And  we apostles would all be lying about God—for we have said that God  raised Christ from the grave. But that can’t be true if there is no  resurrection of the dead. 16 And if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised. 17 And if Christ has not been raised, then your faith is useless and you are still guilty of your sins. 18 In that case, all who have died believing in Christ are lost! 19 And if our hope in Christ is only for this life, we are more to be pitied than anyone in the world.

20 But in fact, Christ has been raised from the dead. He is the first of a great harvest of all who have died.

21 So you see, just as death came into the world through a man, now the resurrection from the dead has begun through another man. 22 Just as everyone dies because we all belong to Adam, everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life. 23 But  there is an order to this resurrection: Christ was raised as the first  of the harvest; then all who belong to Christ will be raised when he  comes back.

24 After  that the end will come, when he will turn the Kingdom over to God the  Father, having destroyed every ruler and authority and power. 25 For Christ must reign until he humbles all his enemies beneath his feet. 26 And the last enemy to be destroyed is death. 27 For the Scriptures say, “God has put all things under his authority.” (Of course, when it says “all things are under his authority,” that  does not include God himself, who gave Christ his authority.) 28 Then,  when all things are under his authority, the Son will put himself under  God’s authority, so that God, who gave his Son authority over all  things, will be utterly supreme over everything everywhere.

29 If  the dead will not be raised, what point is there in people being  baptized for those who are dead? Why do it unless the dead will someday  rise again?

30 And why should we ourselves risk our lives hour by hour? 31 For  I swear, dear brothers and sisters, that I face death daily. This is as  certain as my pride in what Christ Jesus our Lord has done in you. 32 And what value was there in fighting wild beasts—those people of Ephesus—if there will be no resurrection from the dead? And if there is no resurrection, “Let’s feast and drink, for tomorrow we die!” 33 Don’t be fooled by those who say such things, for “bad company corrupts good character.” 34 Think carefully about what is right, and stop sinning. For to your shame I say that some of you don’t know God at all.35 But someone may ask, “How will the dead be raised? What kind of bodies will they have?” 36 What a foolish question! When you put a seed into the ground, it doesn’t grow into a plant unless it dies first. 37 And what you put in the ground is not the plant that will grow, but only a bare seed of wheat or whatever you are planting. 38 Then God gives it the new body he wants it to have. A different plant grows from each kind of seed. 39 Similarly there are different kinds of flesh—one kind for humans, another for animals, another for birds, and another for fish.

40 There  are also bodies in the heavens and bodies on the earth. The glory of  the heavenly bodies is different from the glory of the earthly bodies. 41 The  sun has one kind of glory, while the moon and stars each have another  kind. And even the stars differ from each other in their glory.

42 It  is the same way with the resurrection of the dead. Our earthly bodies  are planted in the ground when we die, but they will be raised to live  forever. 43 Our  bodies are buried in brokenness, but they will be raised in glory. They  are buried in weakness, but they will be raised in strength. 44 They  are buried as natural human bodies, but they will be raised as  spiritual bodies. For just as there are natural bodies, there are also  spiritual bodies.

45 The Scriptures tell us, “The first man, Adam, became a living person.” But the last Adam—that is, Christ—is a life-giving Spirit. 46 What comes first is the natural body, then the spiritual body comes later. 47 Adam, the first man, was made from the dust of the earth, while Christ, the second man, came from heaven. 48 Earthly people are like the earthly man, and heavenly people are like the heavenly man. 49 Just as we are now like the earthly man, we will someday be like the heavenly man.

50 What  I am saying, dear brothers and sisters, is that our physical bodies  cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. These dying bodies cannot inherit  what will last forever.

51 But let me reveal to you a wonderful secret. We will not all die, but we will all be transformed! 52 It  will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet  is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be  raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed. 53 For  our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die;  our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies.

54 Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die, this Scripture will be fulfilled:

“Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?”

56 For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. 57 But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.

58 So,  my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work  enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the  Lord is ever useless.35 But someone may ask, “How will the dead be raised? What kind of bodies will they have?” 36 What a foolish question! When you put a seed into the ground, it doesn’t grow into a plant unless it dies first. 37 And what you put in the ground is not the plant that will grow, but only a bare seed of wheat or whatever you are planting. 38 Then God gives it the new body he wants it to have. A different plant grows from each kind of seed. 39 Similarly there are different kinds of flesh—one kind for humans, another for animals, another for birds, and another for fish.

40 There  are also bodies in the heavens and bodies on the earth. The glory of  the heavenly bodies is different from the glory of the earthly bodies. 41 The  sun has one kind of glory, while the moon and stars each have another  kind. And even the stars differ from each other in their glory.

42 It  is the same way with the resurrection of the dead. Our earthly bodies  are planted in the ground when we die, but they will be raised to live  forever. 43 Our  bodies are buried in brokenness, but they will be raised in glory.

51 But let me reveal to you a wonderful secret. We will not all die, but we will all be transformed! 52 It  will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet  is blown.

The Resurrection Body

35 But someone may ask, “How will the dead be raised? What kind of bodies will they have?” 36 What a foolish question! When you put a seed into the ground, it doesn’t grow into a plant unless it dies first. 37 And what you put in the ground is not the plant that will grow, but only a bare seed of wheat or whatever you are planting. 38 Then God gives it the new body he wants it to have.

42 It  is the same way with the resurrection of the dead. Our earthly bodies  are planted in the ground when we die, but they will be raised to live  forever. 43 Our  bodies are buried in brokenness, but they will be raised in glory. They  are buried in weakness, but they will be raised in strength. 44 They  are buried as natural human bodies, but they will be raised as  spiritual bodies. For just as there are natural bodies, there are also  spiritual bodies.
