On this Sabbath Sunday, I am taking a break from the Morning and Evening Prayer series that we began journeying through together a couple of weeks ago. I hope you are being blessed by this intentional focus on prayer and that it is helping you grow in your spiritual walk. Personally, I know delving into this study of prayer has enriched my daily prayer life.
Have you ever wondered why we, as Christians, observe the holy day on Sunday instead of Saturday? Yes, it’s true. The Sabbath was historically practiced on Saturday prior to the Resurrection. Sometime after the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, the church began observing the Sabbath on Sunday because Jesus rose from the grave on that first Easter Sunday.
My prayer for you today is simply that you would bask in the glory of God and rejoice in His goodness. He is SO good to each of us. Today, may you be blessed during your special time of worship focused on Him. He LOVES us beyond comprehension. As you prepare for the week ahead, may you be filled with love, joy, and peace. Be a bright shining light wherever the days ahead lead you. Amen.

This is the day that the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it!
This is the day of the Lord;
our Savior, Christ, is risen!
He has conquered sin and death,
the power of love has overcome,
and God has given us the victory!
