July 14 – Noon


Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance.

(John 20:1)


Dear God,

You are the God of resurrection and new life. Just as You raised Your Son, Jesus, from the dead on the first Easter morning, I pray that You would bring new life and renewal to my own heart and soul. Help me to experience the power of Your resurrection in my life, bringing healing and restoration to places of brokenness and pain.

As I meditate on the story of Mary Magdalene discovering the empty tomb in this verse, I am reminded of Your faithfulness and Your ability to bring hope out of despair. I pray that You would open my eyes to see the evidence of Your resurrection power at work in my life and in the world around me. May I walk in the confidence of knowing that You are always at work, bringing about new life and redemption. Thank You for the gift of Your Son, and for the hope that His resurrection brings.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
