I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. Philippians 3:10-11

Lord,

I guess I want to thank you for answering my prayer. A couple weeks ago, I came across Philippians 3:10 and thought it would be pretty cool to know the power of your resurrection and experience resurection from the dead. But now that you’re answering my prayer, I realize that I glossed over the middle part of these verses…

My prayer now, God, is that I will experience the power of the resurrection quickly because right now I feel like I’m getting a taste of death. Hear my voice and be merciful to me and answer me, Lord.
