Happy Holy Monday.

Jesus goes to the temple overturns tables and cleanses the building. In the background the  chief priests and scribes hear the message and are seeking a way to kill him.

Dear Jesus,
If my body is a temple to your Holy Spirit, please let me treat it that way.
Clear everything from my being that is not of you.
Overturn the tables of greed, anger,hatred, bitterness, jealously and envy that live inside me.
Clear out all unforgiveness, selfishness and pride.
Cleanse me as you cleansed the temple, in your last few days before your death & resurrection.
Put my sights, mind, heart and being on you Jesus & nothing else.
Let me be a house of prayer to you.
Showing love, compassion to all I know and meet.
Thank you Jesus for all you did for me and everyone the first ever Easter and always.
Keep us in your armour.
Amen.

On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple courts and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves, and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts. And as he taught them, he said, “Is it not written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’ ? But you have made it ‘a den of robbers.’ ” The chief priests and the teachers of the law heard this and began looking for a way to kill him, for they feared him, because the whole crowd was amazed at his teaching. When evening came, Jesus and his disciples went out of the city.
