Scripture for the Fifth Wednesday in Lent

“Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming, and is now here, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself. And he has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of Man. Do not marvel at this, for an hour is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of judgment. ~ John 5:25-29 (ESV)

Almighty God, thank You for giving Jesus the power to resurrect into eternal life all those who follow Him. Guide me to follow His footsteps and carry out His will. In His name I pray. Amen.
