The Cross


Our first Prayer for Easter is based on a song
about the cross of Jesus.

The song follows the prayer.

Note:

The second Prayer for Easter is found down the page.



Father God,

The old rugged cross isn't old in My Heart.

The blood spilling out is still fresh in My Life.

The story of love is still stirring in My Mind.

The power of the message is still new every morning For Me.

Thank you, Lord.

Amen

Father God, the old rugged cross isn't old in My Heart!

-

There is an old hymn that tells the story of Easter....

The Old Rugged Cross


This hymn is by George Bennard.

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
the emblem of suffering and shame;
and I love that old cross
where the dearest and best

for a world of lost sinners was slain.

Chorus:

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,
till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
and exchange it some day for a crown.


O that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,
has a wondrous attraction for me;
for the dear Lamb of God
left his glory above

to bear it to dark Calvary.


In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine
a wondrous beauty I see,
for 'twas on that old cross
Jesus suffered and died,
to pardon and sanctify me.


The Blood of Jesus


This second Prayer for Easter is based on two hymns
about the blood of Jesus.

The songs follow the prayer for Easter.


Lord of Everlasting Love and Everlasting Life,

I give you honor this day.

I ponder the blood of the sinless, spotless Lamb of God.

Blood with wonder - working power.

Blood that covers my sins.

Blood that cleanses me from all unrighteousness.

Blood that sets me free.

Blood that demonstrates everlasting love and gives me everlasting life.

I treasure my Savior and the blood he shed for me.

Amen

Two hymns:


"Nothing but the Blood of Jesus"

and

"There is Power in the Blood"


Nothing but the Blood of Jesus

song by Robert Lowry

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain:
Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.


There Is Power in the Blood

song by Lewis E. Jones

Would you be free from the burden of sin?
There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;
Would you o’er evil a victory win?
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.

Refrain:
There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’r
In the blood of the Lamb;
There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’r
In the precious blood of the Lamb.

Would you be free from your passion and pride?
There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;
Come for a cleansing to Calvary’s tide;
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.

Would you be whiter, much whiter than snow?
There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;
Sin-stains are lost in its life-giving flow;
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.

Would you do service for Jesus your King?
There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;
Would you live daily His praises to sing?
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.


Easter Prayer Page Scriptures

The Blood of Jesus


 Hebrews 10:19-22 

God's Word Translation (GW)

"Brothers and sisters, because of the blood of Jesus we can now
confidently go into the holy place. Jesus has opened a
new and living way for us to go through the curtain.
(The curtain is his own body.)
We have a superior priest in charge of God’s house. 
We have been sprinkled with his blood to free us from a guilty conscience, and our bodies have been washed with clean water.
So we must continue to come to him with a sincere heart and strong faith.
We must continue to hold firmly to our declaration of faith.
The one who made the promise is faithful.
