DAILY PRAYER - JESUS' FINAL DAYS

On this Wednesday in Holy Week, Judas is identified as Jesus’ betrayer. As Jesus endured the suffering of the cross, we are called to run the race of life with perseverance, confident of the joy to come. In the Three Days, which begin tomorrow evening, we will journey with Christ from darkness to light, from captivity to freedom, from death to life. “The Last Supper” read from The Spark Story Bible at 4:15.
