John 11:38-44New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Raises Lazarus From the Dead
38 Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 39 “Take away the stone,” he said.
“But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.”
40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”
41 So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”
43 When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” 44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.
Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”
Dear Lord, You love me so. If I believe, I will see the glory of God. I believe. Thank you Lord. You always hear me, just as you always hear your son, Jesus. I believe that you sent your son, Jesus. He sits at your right hand and petitions for me. I am thankful for your grace and mercy, for I am a sinner. Thank you for saving me. Thank you for preparing a place for me. Thank you for your Truth and your Promises. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
