We recently launched YouVersion Prayer, designed to help us have honest conversations with God, in a time when we are all searching for answers. When you hear people talk about hearing from God, what do they mean? Maybe you’ve tried before to read from the Bible, but you found it hard to understand. Or maybe you just don’t know where to start…

You’re not alone. Let’s pray together.

God, please remind me constantly that You are with me.

Prayer is powerful. And because of social media, we can pray together even when we are physically far apart.

A few weeks ago, we shared a series of Prayers. Now, you can pray with us continuously by following YouVersion Prayer on Instagram and Facebook!

Each day, we’ll post several short prayers that you can save or share with friends and family. Together, let’s continue to seek God’s heart for our hurting world.

How to Talk to Your Kids About Easter

Happy Sunday - Bible App for Kids coloring page

Sacrifice. Crucifixion. Redemption. Resurrection. Renewal. These can be difficult concepts to understand, even for us as adults. How do we introduce our children to these foundational aspects of our faith? The Bible App for Kids can help.

The Bible App for Kids stories “A Goodbye Meal,” “It is Finished,” and “A Happy Sunday” help your kids experience the story of Easter in age-appropriate ways. Interactive animations engage them in the stories, and fun learning activities help them understand what Jesus’ sacrifice means for them.

Consider watching these stories together with your kids, and let them spark discussions about what it means to follow Jesus in your family.

Let’s start this week with a Prayer

An Easter Prayer

Lord, thank you for loving us more than life itself.

God, life is hard and uncertain. So much pain, hurt, and heartache seems to surround us. And yet, knowing this, You still willingly gave up your life and became God with us and God who rescues us.

Thank you.

Because of Your sacrifice, we can spend eternity with You. There is no pain You cannot conquer, no hurt You cannot heal, and no life You cannot transform. Your death and resurrection proved that nothing is impossible for You, and that we are more than conquerors because of You.

Today and every day, help us to fix our hearts and our minds on You. And as we do, please give us more of Your joy, hope, and peace. We love You, and we want to worship You.

What was Jesus’ last week like?


LUKE 22:19

What is Holy Week?

It was the week before Jesus died. A week of Him sharing His final thoughts and goodbyes. One week of telling His disciples “I love you,” one last time.

It was a week filled with pain and promise, leading up to one final, agonized proclamation:

“It is finished.”

With one last breath, Jesus became our final sacrifice. And because of His power over death, we can now become wholly alive.

This Holy Week, set aside time each day leading up to Easter reflecting on what Jesus’ sacrifice means for you. Try a short Easter Plan to help you (and your family) set your mind on Christ.
