Mountaintop Week of Prayer: Hours 121 - 144

HOURS 121 – 144

Peter said to him, “Even if I must die with you, I will not deny you.” And so said all the disciples.
Matthew 26:35

At one last Passover meal Jesus reiterated His love for His disciples. He knelt and washed their feet and He commanded them to love one another. He used bread and a cup of wine as reminders of the depths of His love. In the hours that followed the words He shared during the meal were fulfilled. His body was beaten and broken for them. He blood was poured out so that their sins might be forgiven.

As you pray today take time to read through the events that began at a dinner table and end on a cross. Reflect on the love that God has for you and the forgiveness that is possible because of the cross.

The events of hours 121 – 144 can be found in Matthew 26:20 – 27:66.

Join us this evening for a Good Friday Communion Service at 7pm.
