Devotions in Quarantine

For children this week,

Help them pray this prayer each day:

Alleluia, dear Jesus!  You bring us joy.


Monday, April 12

Reading: John 20:19

When it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and the doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.”

Song to pray:

Hallelujah! Jesus lives!

He is now the Living One;

from the gloomy halls of death

Christ, the conqueror, has gone,

bright forerunner to the skies

of his people, yet to rise.

Tuesday, April 13

Reading: John 20:20-21

After he said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.
Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”

Song to pray:

Jesus lives! Why do you weep?

Why that sad and mournful sigh?

He who died our brother here

lives our brother still on high,

lives forever to bestow

Blessings on his church below.

Wednesday, April 14

Reading: John 20:21-23

Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”
When he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”

Song to pray:

Jesus lives! And thus, my soul,

life eternal waits for you;

joined to him, your living head,

where he is, you shall be too;

with the Lord, at his right hand,

as a victor you shall stand

Thursday, April 15

Reading: John 20:27-28

Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it in my side. Do not doubt but believe.”
Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!”

Song to pray:

Hallelujah! Angels, sing!

Join with us in hymns of praise.

Let your chorus swell the strain

which our feebler voices raise:

Glory to our God above

and on earth his peace and love!
