Dear FFICM Prayer Partners, 

In our prayer time during Holy Week, we remember Jesus’ vulnerable humility and his courageous obedience in the Garden of Gethsemane. Jesus’ spoke to the Father of his weakness, his fatigue, his fears. In the same moment, he faithfully surrendered to the Father’s guidance and will. Jesus invited his closest friends to “keep watch” with him as he surrendered his own will and sought the Father’s.

As we pray together over the ministry of FFICM this week, we hear Jesus’ plea for us to ‘keep watch,’ to vulnerably confess our struggles, and to surrender with obedience to God’s will. Let us come before our Father, confessing the weight of the crosses we bear, with faith that as we surrender, God will supply for us too what we need for obedience.

Below you will find a prayer guide to support you as you accompany us in prayer and worship this week. May God bless your time in the quiet place with hope and peace.
