DIA 25: Orar por las personas que han perdido un ser querido – Pray for those that have lost a love one

Luke 23:7-11 “an elegant robe” Was Jesus stubborn? No answer from him. Here we go again to Pilates. What was Herod thinking? “Not on my watch, first John and now Jesus?” Instead of taking a stand, Herod just “refused to accept jurisdiction and returned Jesus to Pilate.” Jesus was passed from place to place, individualContinue reading “DIA 25: Orar por las personas que han perdido un ser querido – Pray for those that have lost a love one”

DIA 24: Orar por los matrimonios – Pray for marriages

Matthew 27:19 “A dream about him” How important it is to have a spouse with a conscience! I wonder how many of us understand and take our vows, our covenant seriously. I am blessed for a spouse that listens to Spirit and helps me to do the right thing. And I am blessed to haveContinue reading “DIA 24: Orar por los matrimonios – Pray for marriages”

DIA 23: Ora por personas que tienen miedo – Pray for those that are fearful

Matthew 27:15-17 “whom do you want me to release…” Pilates knew Jesus was not interested in his position or in his palace. Jesus had a mandate from God to love even his enemies; and Pilates a desired to please the religious institution of that time. When they choose Barabbas they choose violence over the loveContinue reading “DIA 23: Ora por personas que tienen miedo – Pray for those that are fearful”

DIA 22: Ora por las naciones – Pray for the nations

Mark 15: 1b-5 “Yes, I am” He was arrested, paraded through the streets of Jerusalem and now they want him to answer many questions. What is it that this man wanted to hear? “Are you the King of the Jews? Yes, I am.” Period and the sentence its finished! There is nothing else to say.Continue reading “DIA 22: Ora por las naciones – Pray for the nations”

DIA 21 Orar por la familia pastoral – Pray for the pastoral family

Mark 14:63-64 “What is your decision?” Ahi, me dolió! Esa mañana la calle, el driveway y la acera estaban llenas de nieve. El hombre de mi casa estaba enfermo pero decidió salir, en contra de todas mis lengueterias, a palear. Claro yo me fui afuera con el. Y nos fuimos en un viaje a travesContinue reading “DIA 21 Orar por la familia pastoral – Pray for the pastoral family”

DIA 20 : Orar por los pacientes de enfermedades terminals – Pray for the terminally ill

Matthew 27:3-5 “…Judas threw the silver coins into the Temple and left. Then he went out and hung himself” I can only imagine this experience. My God,! Betraying the one who gave you identity, the one who walked with you. I am really overcome with so many thoughts. Some might say, “that was his destiny”;Continue reading “DIA 20 : Orar por los pacientes de enfermedades terminals – Pray for the terminally ill”

DIA 19: Pray for the victims of abuse – Ora por las victimas de maltrato

Mark 14:66-72 “Then […] broke down and wept” Hamilton reminded us that we all have faced a “moment when we were afraid to be identified as a follower of Jesus.” I can hardly find the words to ask for forgiveness when my fears have paralyzed me in a way that I am unable to doContinue reading “DIA 19: Pray for the victims of abuse – Ora por las victimas de maltrato”

DIA 18: Ora por los lideres espirituales – Pray for our spiritual leaders

Luke 22:54-55 “following at a distance” I agree with Hamilton, a coward will not stay, will not stand and will not act. Peter acted and “cut off the ear of the high priest’ servant,” he was in the courtyard and was recognized as a follower of Jesus. He was present. He was there “at aContinue reading “DIA 18: Ora por los lideres espirituales – Pray for our spiritual leaders”

DAY 17: Orar por decisiones sabias – Pray for wise decisions

Mark 14:61b-65 “Yes, I am.” OK, OK! I got it! If you remain in silence and say nothing you are guilty. And if you say something, you are guilty!
