Thursday in Holy Week


Thursday in Holy Week

In preparation for Easter, we want to be faithful to remember and meditate on each day of holy week as we prepare our hearts to worship and celebrate all that God has done for us through Jesus’ death and resurrection.  Using Trinity Presbyterian Church’s Holy Week Worship Guide, each day we’ll post the passages that correspond with what took place in Jesus’ life on that particular day during his last week.  Along with the passages will be a short reflective prayer and a devotional.  Our hope is that these posts will serve as a guide for you in preparing your heart for worship and wonder of the Savior!

Thursday in Holy Week 

What happens on this day: 

The Last Supper: Matthew 26:17-29; Mark 14:12-25; Luke 22:7-20; John 13:1-38

Jesus comforts disciples: John 14:1-16:33

Jesus’ arrest and trial: Matthew 26:47-27:26; Mark 14:43-15:15; Luke 22:47-23:25; John 18:2-19:16

Prayer to internalize and make your own: 

Holy God, source of all love, on the night of his betrayal Jesus gave his disciples a new commandment, to love one another as he loved them. Write this commandment in our hearts; give us the will to serve others as he was the servant of all, who gave his life and died for us, yet is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
