Prayer for Holy Saturday

A Holy Saturday Prayer

Father, We recognize the significance of Holy Saturday for the Easter season. It is not merely a day between Good Friday and Easter, but it is a day to observe in consecration of what You did for us. We leave our own agendas, our own desires, and our own pleas at the door and crave today to be still and rest in Your presence. We are so grateful for the ability to quiet our hearts and stand in Your presence, we want to come to know Your heart more this day. Thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus to die for us, and thank You that You kept Your promise. Let us not be so hurried in our own lives that we forget the glory that You brought forth that day.

In Jesus name, Amen

For the women who would come to the Tomb the next day, Holy Saturday was a day of rest and preparation within their hearts. The oils and spices were finished, but the preparation of their hearts took place that Saturday. We too can prepare our hearts for the joy that is to come dawning Easter Sunday. Taking part in that joy can include leaning into what He has to share to our hearts on Holy Saturday. May God fill you with the delight of His love, and the elation of what is to come by His hand.
