Holy Week is the week leading up to Easter, beginning on Palm Sunday, 14th April 2019. With free daily devotional feeds on your mobile through the PrayerMate app, it can provide a much needed opportunity to step back from the busyness of life and fix our eyes on Jesus, following along with him through the events of that most significant of weeks leading up to the cross and resurrection.

Your Sorrow Will Turn To Joy — Desiring God
Holy Week is not an obligation. It is an opportunity. In the chaos of our increasingly fast-paced and hectic society, the annual coming of Holy Week each spring is a reminder to pause and ponder, to carefully mark each day, and not let this greatest of all weeks fly like every other. It is a chance to walk with the church throughout the world and throughout time as she accompanies her Bridegroom through the eight most important days in history. And it is an opportunity to focus our minds on, and seek to intensify our affections for, the highest and most timeless realities in the universe. Desiring God have assembled a team of eleven pastors and scholars to walk us through Holy Week as we walk together with our Lord. This collection of short meditations includes readings for each morning and evening from Palm Sunday to the triumph of Easter.
Morning and evening readings from Sunday 14th April 2019. Subscribe here.
