13 Now behold, two of them were traveling that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was seven miles from Jerusalem. 14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened. 15 So it was, while they conversed and reasoned, that Jesus Himself drew near and went with them. Luke 24:13-15 (NKJV)
Jesus, please join us on all our journeys.
16 But their eyes were restrained, so that they did not know Him. Luke 24:16 (NKJV)
Lord, our eyes are constrained in that we don't recognize you most of the time.
17 And He said to them, "What kind of conversation is this that you have with one another as you walk and are sad?" 18 Then the one whose name was Cleopas answered and said to Him, "Are You the only stranger in Jerusalem, and have You not known the things which happened there in these days?" Luke 24:17-18 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, please help tell what we know of Jesus.
19 And He said to them, "What things?" So they said to Him, "The things concerning Jesus of Nazareth, who was a Prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, 20 and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to be condemned to death, and crucified Him. Luke 24:19-20 (NKJV)
Father, the chief priests of the Episcopal Church have condemned Jesus.
21 But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Israel. Indeed, besides all this, today is the third day since these things happened. 22 Yes, and certain women of our company, who arrived at the tomb early, astonished us. 23 When they did not find His body, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of angels who said He was alive. 24 And certain of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said; but Him they did not see." Luke 24:21-24 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, please help me to live in hope in what Jesus will do.
25 Then He said to them, "O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?" 27 And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself. Luke 24:25-27 (NKJV)
Jesus, please help me believe all that your word says through the prophets. Come Holy Spirit, fill me with resurrection hope and faith.
