Prayers for Holy Week

Holy Week is traditionally a solemn time (until Easter, that is!) when Christians around the world meditate on the betrayal, death, and burial of our Lord Jesus.

Holy Saturday

Today’s Old Testament Reading, the account of Daniel and the lions’ den, is our focus. We take our devotion from Portals of Prayer.

Good Friday

We return to our Isaiah theme for Good Friday and read a devotion from Gospel Handles: Old Testament Lessons.

Holy (Maundy) Thursday

For this day during Holy Week, we focus on the reading from Mark with an excerpt from Welcome to the Lord’s Table.

Wednesday in Holy Week

Our devotion for Wednesday in Holy Week continues our Isaiah theme and comes from God Grant It.

Tuesday in Holy Week

Continuing with our Isaiah theme for Holy Week, we take our devotion today from LifeLight: Isaiah, Part 2—Leaders Guide.

Monday in Holy Week

During Holy Week, most of our devotions will focus on the readings from Isaiah. Our devotion today is from Concordia Commentary: Isaiah 40–55.

Passion Sunday (Palm Sunday)

As we move through Holy Week, most of our devotions will focus on the Old Testament Readings. For Palm Sunday, we focus on the reading from Zechariah with an excerpt from LifeLight: Haggai/Zechariah/Malachi—Leaders Guide.

Holy Saturday

For Holy Saturday today, we read from The Christian Year of Grace to help us focus on Psalm 16, specifically verse 10: “For You will not abandon my soul to Sheol, or let Your holy one see corruption.”

Good Friday

On this day when we remember Jesus’ crucifixion, we focus on the Psalm with a devotion from Lamb of God, Pure and Holy—Lent Preaching and Worship Resource.
