121 Days of Prayer

He is Not the God of the Dead, But of the Living

The purposes of this prayer are: End Times/The Second Coming of Jesus and Illumination.

Everlasting God, Mark recorded the incident when some Sadducees approached Jesus to ask him whose wife a woman would be in the resurrection: “’There were seven brothers; and the first took a wife, and died leaving no children. The second one married her, and died leaving behind no children; and the third likewise; and so all seven left no children. Last of all the woman died also. In the resurrection, when they rise again, which one’s wife will she be? For all seven had married her.’ Jesus said to them, ‘Is this not the reason you are mistaken, that you do not understand the Scriptures or the power of God? For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. But regarding the fact that the dead rise again, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the passage about the burning bush, how God spoke to him, saying, ‘I Am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? He is not the God of the dead, but of the living; you are greatly mistaken.’” Mark 12:20–27 (NASB). Lord, we pray for your illumination as we study the Bible. Allow us to correctly discern the meaning of each passage that we read. We ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.
