Jesus Reveals truth on the Mount of Olives

One Verb Prayers in Response to Jesus’ Journey to the Cross: Reveal

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Welcome to Holy Week Wednesday!

I’ve written a prayer matched to one Jesus event during Holy Week week. I hope to show us a fresh way to enter into this history changing week. So join me in praying One Verb Prayers in Response to Jesus’ Holy Week Journey to the Cross. 

Today’s verb is Reveal from Mark 12: 13- 14:

Later the religious leaders sent some of the Pharisees and Herodians to Jesus. They wanted to trap him with his own words. They came to him and said, “Teacher, we know that you are a man of honor. You don’t let other people tell you what to do or say. You don’t care how important they are. But you teach the way of God truthfully.”

Scripture does not mention what Jesus did on Wednesday. Some think he may have returned to Mary, Martha, and the brought back to life Lazarus’ home to rest. Sounds reasonable. We probably need rest too.

What I focused on for this prayer is Jesus’ incredible teaching while he was in Jerusalem. Jesus shows he is extremely wise, powerful, and compassionate. We need the revelation of Jesus to live the way he showed us to live. 

Holy Spirit, 

Reveal to me Your true self, my true self, and the true way to life. 

In the name of the Father, Spirit, and Son, Amen

    interesting contrast here, between the bold and prophetic public speaking of the Lord coming into Jerusalem, and then the possibility that he “went quiet” to rest for awhile with his close personal friends,…

    not only does his public presence “reveal”, but so does his quiet side,…

    what came to my mind, while reading this, was “retreat”,… “going on retreat” has been a somewhat “popular” tradition among various church and prayer groups, where people are encouraged to “take a break” from the ordinary habits and patterns of daily life, and to devote time to more quiet reflection and focus on the development of our personal “spiritual life” and deeper internal awareness,…

    one of my very favorite scriptural admonitions, which is also very simple, is “Be still and know that I am God”,…

    Psalm 46:10
    “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”

    not only will we become more aware of God’s essence and presence, but we will become more aware of our own potential and relatedness to Him,…

    Isaiah 30:15
    “For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: “In returning and rest you shall be saved; In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.” … …

    amen,… it is so,…

    1. Interesting indeed. I almost focused on the verb retreat. I hoped readers would see that possibility in my mentioning it, as you did. Thanks for the meaningful interaction.
