During the season of Lent, I will be sharing a short post each day as part of the Lent-Photo-a-Day Journey, providing a sort of brief reflection and witness through the journey to and through the cross, to the tomb, and out into the world.
The word designated for April 1st was “Pray.”
As we journey through Holy Week today I simply present this picture of Jesus praying in the garden. It seems very appropriate for this Maundy Thursday. This picture currently resides on a wall in my office at the church I am serving. I think that just about every congregation I have ever visited though has it somewhere. In some church buildings it might be in in an office or meeting room, in others in a fellowship hall or class room, and in others even used in worship spaces, sanctuaries and/or chapels.
When you see this picture, what comes to mind for you? What and whom do you hold in prayer this week?
