Jesus taught, “Ask, and ye shall receive” (John 16:24). Prayer has the power to bring blessings into our lives. Take a moment today to write down answers you’ve recently received to prayers.

The Last Supper

In the evening, Jesus Christ gathers His apostles to share a meal and express His love for them. The Last Supper is a quiet, beautiful moment that takes place before Jesus enters the Garden of Gethsemane later that night. He knows that soon He will sacrifice His life and His disciples will be without Him. He introduces the ordinance of the sacrament so they always remember His sacrifice, and He teaches them the power of prayer. He encourages them to ask their Father in Heaven for the things they need so that they can know that God hears and answers the prayers of His children.

Read the account of the Last Supper in the Bible

7 Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.

8 And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.

9 And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?

10 And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in.

11 And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?

12 And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready.

13 And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.

14 And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.

15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:

16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

17 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:

18 For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.

19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
