Daily Prayer for May 27th, 2019          

Good morning, God—thank You for this Memorial day!! 🙂

Today, and often, I think of those who courageously laid down their lives to fight for my/our freedom. May the examples of their sacrifice inspire in me the selfless love of Your Son, Jesus Christ, my Savior. Bless the families of those fallen troops. Fill their homes and lives with Your strength and peace. For as in Adam, we all die, so also in Christ shall we all be made alive! In Jesus name. Amen.

John 15:13 English Standard Version (ESV)

13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.

Joshua 4:1-9 English Standard Version (ESV)

Twelve Memorial Stones from the Jordan

When all the nation had finished passing over the Jordan, the Lord said to Joshua, “Take twelve men from the people, from each tribe a man, and command them, saying, ‘Take twelve stones from here out of the midst of the Jordan, from the very place where the priests’ feet stood firmly, and bring them over with you and lay them down in the place where you lodge tonight.’” Then Joshua called the twelve men from the people of Israel, whom he had appointed, a man from each tribe. And Joshua said to them, “Pass on before the ark of the Lord your God into the midst of the Jordan, and take up each of you a stone upon his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the people of Israel, that this may be a sign among you. When your children ask in time to come, ‘What do those stones mean to you?’ then you shall tell them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord. When it passed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. So these stones shall be to the people of Israel a memorial forever.”

2 Timothy 2:3 English Standard Version (ESV)

Share in suffering as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.

1 Corinthians 15:22 English Standard Version (ESV)

22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.
